STS-78 Payload Specialist Jean-Jacques Favier is donning his launch/entry suit in the Operations and Checkout Building. A representative of the French Space Agency (CNES), Favier is one of four spaceflight rookies flying on STS-78. He served as an alternate payload specialist for an earlier Shuttle flight, STS-65. In a short while, he and his six fellow crew members will depart the O&C and head for Launch Pad 39B, where the Space Shuttle Columbia awaits liftoff during a two-and-a-half hour launch window opening at 10:49 a.m. EDT, June 20. STS-78 will be an extended duration flight during which extensive research will be conducted in the Life and Microgravity Spacelab (LMS) located in the payload bay. (Photo Release Date: 06/20/96 )
