STS-80 Mission Specialist Story Musgrave is donning his launch/entry suit in the Operations and Checkout Building with assistance from a suit technician. Musgrave's sixth flight into space is noteworthy in two respects. First, he will tie NASA astronaut John Young's record for most number of spaceflights by any human being. Secondly, at age 61, Musgrave will be the oldest person ever to fly in space. He and four crew members will shortly depart the O&C and head for Launch Pad 39B, where the Space Shuttle Columbia awaits liftoff during a two-and-a-half hour window opening at 2:53 p.m. EST, Nov. 19.
