KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL - Astronaut and recent Mir 23 crew member Jerry M. Linenger holds a stuffed bear he was given by NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin at the conclusion of the STS-84 Space Shuttle mission. STS-84 was the sixth docking of the Shuttle with the Russian Space Station Mir, where Linenger has lived and worked the past four months. Goldin presented several gifts to Linenger in the Crew Transport Vehicle shortly after landing of the Space Shuttle orbiter Atlantis on KSC's Runway 33. Besides the bear for Linenger's 18-month-old son, John, Goldin gave the astronaut flowers for Linenger's wife, Kathryn; and a rattle for the Linengers' unborn child who is due next month. Linenger was replaced on the Russian space station by STS-84 Mission Specialist C. Michael Foale. (Photo Release Date: 05/24/97 )
