STS-84 Mission Specialists Elena V. Kondakova, at left, and Jean-Francois Clervoy pose for photos outside the SPACEHAB Double Module, which will carry more than 6,000 pounds of scientific experiments and logistics to the Russian Space Station Mir. Kondakova, a cosmonaut with the Russian Space Agency, has the nickname of Betty Sue for this mission. Clervoy, an astronaut with the European Space Agency, is wearing a name tag with his mission nickname, Billy Bob. They are participating in the Crew Equipment Integration Test (CEIT) at the SPACEHAB Payload Processing Facility in Cape Canaveral. STS-84 will be the sixth docking of the Space Shuttle with Mir. It also will be the third consecutive crew member exchange of U.S. astronauts aboard Mir. STS-84 Mission Specialist C. Michael Foale will replace astronaut Jerry M. Linenger on Mir. Linenger has been on Mir since the STS- 81 mission in January. Foale is scheduled to remain on Mir about four months. STS-84 is targeted for a May 15 liftoff. (Photo Release Date: 03/20/97 )
