STS-84 crew members pose for a group photograph in the Launch Complex 39 area with Launch Pad A in the background. The seven crew members are scheduled to lift off next month from Pad A aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis on a scheduled nine-day mission. From left, are Mission Specialist Carlos I. Noriega, Commander Charles J. Precourt, Pilot Eileen Marie Collins, Russian cosmonaut and STS-84 Mission Specialist Elena V. Kondakova, Mission Specialist Edward Tsang Lu, European Space Agency astronaut and STS-84 Mission Specialist Jean-Francois Clervoy, and Mission Specialist C. Michael Foale. They are at KSC to participate in the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT), a dress rehearsal for launch. Foale will be dropped off on Mir to become a member of the Mir 23 crew, replacing U.S. astronaut Jerry M. Linenger, who will return to Earth on Atlantis after about four months on the orbiting station. STS-84 will be the sixth Shuttle-Mir docking. Liftoff is targeted for May 15.
