STS-95 Payload Specialist Chiaki Mukai, representing National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA), grins for the camera after looking at equipment in the SPACEHAB module while Chris Jaskolka, of Boeing SPACEHAB, gives her a thumbs up. The STS-95 crew is at KSC for a familiarization tour of the SPACEHAB module and the equipment that will fly with them on the Space Shuttle Discovery scheduled to launch Oct. 29, 1998. The mission includes research payloads such as the Spartan solar-observing deployable spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope Orbital Systems Test Platform, the International Extreme Ultraviolet Hitchhiker, as well as the SPACEHAB single module with experiments on space flight and the aging process.
