STS-70 Mission Commander Terence "Tom" Henricks bends over to inspect a tire on the landing gear of the Space Shuttle Orbiter Discovery after the spaceplane touched down on KSC's Runway 33 at the unofficial time of 8:02 a.m. EDT July 22, 1995 to conclude the nearly-nine day space flight.

Harrington, in the Orlando Magic Basketball team hat, is helping the crew with the post-landing inspection. The orbiter traveled some 3.7 million statute miles during the flight, which included a one-day extension because of fog and low visibility conditions at KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility on July 21. This was the 24th Shuttle landing at KSC and the 70th Space Shuttle mission. During the space flight, the five-member crew deployed the NASA Tracking and Data Relay Satellite-G (TDRS-G). The other crew members were Mission Specialists Nancy Jane Currie and Mary Ellen Weber. (Photo Release Date: 7/22/95 )
