  Title: 41-C mission specialists repair captured Solar Maximum Mission Satellite
  Description:
  Close-up view of two mission specialists participating in an extravehicular 
  activity (EVA) to repair the "captured" Solar Maximum Mission Satellite 
  (SMMS) in the aft end of the Challenger's cargo bay. Astronauts George D. 
  Nelson, left, and James D. van Hoften work to change a faulty attitude 
  control module on the SMMS. They use the mobile foot restraint and the
  remote  manipulator system (RMS) as a device for moving about. The
  partially visible  device on van Hoften's hands is the module service tool.
