STS-76 Mission Specialist Michael Richard "Rich" Clifford is donning his launch/entry suit in the Operations and Checkout Building with assistance from a suit technician. Clifford has flown in space twice before, on Missions STS-53 and STS-59, the latter including fellow STS-76 crew members Kevin Chilton and Linda Godwin. Once suitup activities are completed the six-member STS-76 flight crew will depart for Launch Pad 39B, where the Space Shuttle Atlantis is undergoing final preparations for liftoff during an approximately seven-minute launch window opening around 3:13 a.m. EST, March 22.
