  Title: STS-50 Payload Specialist DeLucas floats in life raft during JSC WETF bailout
  Description:
  STS-50 Columbia, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 102, United States Microgravity 
  Laboratory 1 (USML-1) Payload Specialist Lawrence J. DeLucas, wearing
  launch  and entry suit (LES) and launch and entry helmet (LEH), floats in a
  single  person life raft during launch emergency egress (bailout) exercises
  in JSC's  Weightless Environment Training Facility (WETF) Bldg 29.  During
  the  exercises, the WETF's 25-foot deep pool was used to simulate the
  ocean.   Crewmembers were dropped from their parachute harnesses into the
  pool,  inflated their life rafts, and used survival equipment to protect
  themselves  from the elements and signal for help.
