During emergency egress training at Launch pad 39A, STS-101 Mission Specialists Jeffrey N. Williams and Mary Ellen Weber, Pilot Scott J. "Doc" Horowitz and Commander James D. Halsell Jr. get instruction on using the slidewire basket. The basket would be used in the event the crew needed to exit quickly from the fixed service structure at the 195-foot level. The training is part of Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT) activities that include a simulated launch countdown and familiarization with the payload. Others taking part in the TCDT are Mission Specialists James Voss, Susan J. Helms and Yuri Usachev of Russia. During their mission to the International Space Station, the STS-101 crew will be delivering logistics and supplies, plus preparing the Station for the arrival of the Zvezda Service Module, expected to be launched by Russia in July 2000. Also, the crew will conduct one space walk to perform maintenance on the Space Station. This will be the third assembly flight for the Space Station. STS-101 is scheduled to launch April 24 at 4:15 p.m. from Launch Pad 39A. (Photo Release Date: 04/06/2000 )
