  Description:
  STS-31 Mission Specialist (MS) Bruce McCandless II, wearing liquid cooling 
  and ventilation garment (LCVG), is assisted by the microgravity of space as 
  he removes the extravehicular mobility unit (EMU) lower torso.  McCandless 
  was in a standby mode to perform extravehicular activity (EVA) if needed 
  to support Hubble Space Telescope (HST) deployment and post-deployment
  tasks.  None was needed.  His EMU helmet and gloves freefloat in the
  background.
