  Description:
  Panoramic view of the space shuttle Challenger. Two mission specialists 
  participate 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, right, and James D. van Hoften use 
  the mobile foot restraint and the remote manipulator system (RMS) as a
  device  for moving about. Note the gibbous moon to the right of center and
  the  horizon of the blue and white earth in the lower right quadrant.
