Smith (foreground) and Claude Nicollier take an early look at their extravehicular mobility unit (EMU) space suits on Discovery's mid deck near the end of their first full day in space. Smith is payload commander and Nicollier, mission specialist representing the European Space Agency (ESA). The two will participate in space walks to service the Hubble Space Telescope later in the week.
