  Title: STS-54 MS Susan J. Helms prepares for EVA simulation at JSC's WETF Bldg 29
  Description:
  STS-54 Endeavour, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 105, Mission Specialist 3 (MS3)
  Susan  J. Helms, wearing liquid cooling and ventilation garment (LCVG) and 
  extravehicular mobility unit (EMU) lower torso, prepares to don EMU upper 
  torso with some assistance from technicians.  Once fully suited in the 
  EMU, Helms will participate in an underwater extravehicular activity (EVA) 
  simulation in JSC's Weightless Environment Training Facility (WETF) Bldg
  29.   Though not assigned to the scheduled EVA, Helms, for backup and
  contingency  purposes, is trained in the WETF.  Nearby, divers await her
  entry into the  water via the platform (visible behind Helms).   The EMU is
  weighted so as to  allow Helms to achieve neutral buoyancy and simulate the
  various chores of  the spacewalk.
