U.S. astronauts and Russian cosmonauts training for the STS-71 mission aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis pose for a group portrait in the Launch Pad 39A white room, beside the orbiter crew hatch. They are participating in the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT), a dress rehearsal for launch. In back row, clockwise from left, are Pilot Charles J. Precourt; Mission Specialists Bonnie J. Dunbar and Gregory J. Harbaugh; Mission Commander Robert L. "Hoot" Gibson; and cosmonaut Anatoly Y. Solovyev. In front row, from left, are alternate cosmonaut Yuri I. Onufrienko; cosmonaut Nikolai M. Budarin; Mission Specialist Dr. Ellen S. Baker and alternate cosmonaut Yuri V. Usachev. The five astronauts and two Russian cosmonauts, Solovyev and Budarin, will lift off on Shuttle Atlantis for a rendezvous and docking with the Russian Mir Space Station. The two cosmonauts will transfer to Mir as crew members of the Mir 19 mission, and Atlantis will pick up the two Mir 18 cosmonauts and astronaut Dr. Norman E. Thagard for the return trip to Earth. Thagard and the two Mir 18 cosmonauts have been on the Russian space station since mid-March. STS-71 is targeted for launch no earler than June 22. (Photo Release Date: 5/24/95 )
