Veteran Russian cosmonaut and STS-71 crew member Anatoly Y. Solovyev looks relaxed and at ease as he dons his launch/entry suit with assistance from a suit technician in the Operations and Checkout Building. His fourth trip into space will be both historic and unusual for Solovyev. He and fellow crew member Nikolai Budarin are scheduled to transfer to the Mir Space Station during STS-71 and remain there, meaning they will begin their spaceflight in one country, the United States, and complete it with a return trip home to another, Russia. Solovyev is assigned as the Mir 19 mission commander, while Budarin is the Mir 19 flight engineer. (Photo Release Date: 6/27/95 )
