Russian cosmonaut and STS-71 crew member Nikolai M. Budarin gets a helping hand from a suit technician as he dons his launch/entry suit in the Operations and Checkout Building. STS-71 will be Budarin's first trip into space, and it promises to be a remarkable one: Budarin will begin his journey into space in one country, the United States, and complete it in another, Russia. Budarin is assigned as the Mir 19 flight engineer, and during the course of the STS-71 mission, he and Mir 19 Mission Commander Anatoly Solovyev -- also on the STS-71 crew -- will transfer to the Mir Space Station and remain there while the crew currently on Mir returns to Earth in the Shuttle.
