Looking relaxed and at ease after their 10-day spaceflight, five of the STS-79 astronauts pose for a group portrait with NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin. From left are Mission Specialist Jay Apt; Pilot Terrence W. Wilcutt; Goldin; Commander William F. Readdy; and Mission Specialists Thomas D. Akers and Carl E. Walz. Behind them, post landing activities continue on the orbiter Atlantis, which touched down on KSC's Runway 15 at 8:13:15 a.m. EDT to conclude Mission STS-79. Not shown is U.S. astronaut Shannon W. Lucid, who returned to Earth with the STS-79 flight crew after a record breaking stay aboard the Russian Space Station Mir. (Photo Release Date: 09/26/96 )
