STS-78 Mission Commander Terence T. "Tom" Henricks and Pilot Kevin R. Kregel display a replica of the Olympic torch that flew aboard the Space Shuttle orbiter Columbia during its record-setting 17-day mission during a July 7, 1996 ceremony held at the KSC Visitor Center to pay tribute to space center runners and others who participated in the Olympic Torch Relay. Henricks and Kregel presented the torch to members of the Olympic Committee at the ceremony after arriving at KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility along with the rest of the STS-78 crew aboard Columbia at 8:37 a.m., EDT July 7, 1996. The Olympic torch arrived at KSC at 1:40 p.m. that day and was carried out to Launch Pad 39A by a team of 20 KSC runners. (Photo Release Date: 07/07/96 )
