STS-86 Mission Specialists Wendy B. Lawrence, at left, and David A. Wolf confer -- possibly about the Russian Space Station Mir? -- after their arrival at KSCs Shuttle Landing Facility for the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT). Lawrence was supposed to be the next U.S. astronaut slated for a long-duration stay aboard Mir, but was replaced by Wolf in late July. Unlike Lawrence, Wolf has undergone spacewalk training and fits in the Orlan spacesuit used by Russians on spacewalks. Lawrence will remain on the STS-86 crew, but will return to Earth at the conclusion of the planned 10-day mission. Wolf will take the place on Mir of astronaut C. Michael Foale, who arrived on the Russian space station during the STS-84 mission in May. STS-86 will be the seventh docking of the Space Shuttle with the Mir. The mission is targeted for a Sept. 25 launch aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis. (Photo Release Date: 09/08/97 )
