STS-95 Mission Commander Curtis L. Brown Jr. (left) and Payload Specialist John H. Glenn Jr. (right) display a newspaper published at the time of Glenn's first flight in Friendship 7, February 1962. Brown and Glenn were participating in Crew Equipment Interface Test (CEIT) for their mission. The CEIT gives astronauts an opportunity for a hands-on look at the payloads on which they will be working on orbit. The launch of the STS-95 mission, aboard Space Shuttle Discovery, is scheduled for 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.
