  Title: STS-40 crewmembers hold their noses while investigating ORF failure on OV-102
  Description:
  STS-40 Mission Specialist (MS) James P. Bagian (left) and Pilot Sidney M. 
  Gutierrez hold their noses as they investigate the orbiter refrigerator 
  freezer (ORF) failure on the middeck of Columbia, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 102.  
  Their expressions indicate that their noses are working quite well and that 
  microgravity does not deter the movement of odor.  The crewmembers reported 
  to ground controllers that their best guess was that sealing in the 
  refrigerator, and not the refrigerator's contents, was producing the odor.
