A suit technician assists STS-71 Mission Commander Robert L. "Hoot" Gibson during suitup activities in the Operations and Checkout Building. Gibson and the rest of his flight crew -- four U.S. astronauts and two Russian cosmonauts -- will shortly depart for Launch Pad 39A, where the Space Shuttle Atlantis awaits a third liftoff attempt at 3:32 p.m. EDT. His fifth trip into space will be an historic one for Gibson, as he commands a mission to complete the first docking between the U.S. Space Shuttle and the Russian Space Station Mir.
