STS-71 Mission Commander Robert L. "Hoot" Gibson (far right), STS-71 crew member and Mir 19 Mission Commander Anatoly Y. Solovyev (front row, left) and STS-71 Pilot Charles J. Precourt (front row, center) lead the way from the Operations and Checkout Building, en route for the Space Shuttle Atlantis at Launch Pad 39A. Behind him are (from left) STS-71 Payload Commander Dr. Ellen S. Baker; STS-71 Mission Specialists Gregory J. Harbaugh and Bonnie J. Dunbar (waving); and STS-71 crew member and Mir 19 Flight Engineer Nikolai M. Budarin. The weather looks more promising for this third attempt to get the 100th U.S. human space launch off the ground; a first attempt on June 23 was scrubbed prior to external tank loading and a second try on June 24 was halted at the T-9-minute mark, both times because of persistent rainy weather in the central Florida region. Liftoff is scheduled during a 10-minute launch window opening at 3:32 p.m. EDT. (Photo Release Date: 6/27/95 )
