One of the final pictures taken during the STS-85 mission was this frame, exposed on the mid-deck during preparations for the August 19, 1997 entry. Left to right are payload specialist Bjarni V. Tryggvason, with astronauts Kent V. Rominger, pilot, and N. Jan Davis, payload commander. Rominger has already donned his partial pressure launch and entry suit, while Tryggvason and Davis have put on their blue under garments but have yet to don their escape suits.
