Astronaut Kent V. Rominger, STS-73 pilot, floats through a tunnel connecting the Space Shuttle Columbia's cabin and its science module. Rominger is one of seven crewmembers in the midst of a 16-day multi-faceted mission aboard Columbia. For the next week and a half, the crew will continue working in shifts around the clock on a diverse assortment of United States Microgravity Laboratory (USML-2) experiments located in the science module. Fields of study include fluid physics, materials science, biotechnology, combustion science and commercial space processing technologies. The frame was exposed with an Electronic Still Camera (ESC).
