Comraderie and good will abound as the STS-71 flight crew completes another milestone on their way to an historic destination. Greeting each other after their arrival at KSC from Johnson Space Center, Houston, are (from left): STS-71 Mission Specialists Gregory J. Harbaugh and Bonnie J. Dunbar; STS-71 Mission Commander Robert L. "Hoot" Gibson (Mir 19 Mission Commander Anatoly Y. Solovyev is behind Gibson); Mir 19 Flight Engineer Nikolai M. Budarin (STS-71 Pilot Charles J. Precourt is behind Budarin) and STS-71 Payload Commander Dr. Ellen S. Baker. During the course of Mission STS-71, slated for liftoff on June 23, the orbiter Atlantis will dock with the Russian Space Station Mir. Solovyev and Budarin will transfer to Mir and remain there, while the three crew members currently on Mir will return to Earth in Atlantis. (Photo Release Date: 6/24/95 )
