Discovery Begins Mission to International Space Station

Space Shuttle Discovery lifted off at 6:50 a.m. EDT Thursday, May 27, 1999, from Launch Pad 39-B beginning its journey to the International Space Station. Discovery will dock with the station on Flight Day 3. While docked, the astronauts will conduct a spacewalk to attach a crane to the exterior of the station for future assembly missions and outfit it with more than 5,000 pounds of supplies. An international crew of seven will become the first visitors to the new International Space Station since its launch and assembly last year.

Six NASA astronauts and a Russian cosmonaut take a break from training to pose for the STS-96 crew portrait. Astronaut Kent V. Rominger, mission commander, is at left on the front row. Astronaut Rick D. Husband, right, is pilot. The mission specialists are Ellen Ochoa (front center) and, from the left on the back row, Daniel T. Barry, Julie Payette, Valeriy I. Tokarev and Tamara Jernigan. Payette represents the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and Tokarev is with the Russian Space Agency (RSA). The crew will perform the first station docking and will become the first visitors to the new International Space Station since its launch and start of orbital assembly last year. PHOTO CREDIT: NASA
