STS-72 Commander Brian Duffy (far right) leads the way from the Operations and Checkout Building, headed toward Launch Pad 39B and the final phase of the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test. Behind him are (from left), Mission Specialist Koichi Wakata, who represents Japan's National Space Development Agency (NASDA); Pilot Brent Jett; and Mission Specialists Daniel T. Barry, Winston E. Scott and Leroy Chiao. Once at the pad, the astronauts will be strapped into their seats inside the Space Shuttle Endeavour, and a simulated countdown leading up to the T-0 mark will be conducted, allowing a realistic training exercise for both the flight and launch control crews. Endeavour is scheduled to lift off on Mission STS-72 in January. (Photo Release Date: 12/06/95 )
