STS-106 crew members, rapidly approaching the time when good-byes to the International Space Station (ISS) will be in order, pose for an inflight crew portrait, snapped by a pre-set electronic still camera (ESC) nearby. Astronaut Terrence W. Wilcutt, mission commander, is at front center, and Scott D. Altman, pilot, front right. Cosmonaut Yuri I. Malenchenko, mission specialist, is at front left. In the rear are (from the left) astronauts Daniel C. Burbank, Edward T. Lu and Richard A. Mastracchio, along with cosmonaut Boris V. Morukov, all mission specialists. Malenchenko and Morukov represent the Russian Aviation and Space Agency.
