Positioned in couches on the mid deck of a shuttle trainer/mockup, three mission specialists assigned to the STS-92 mission go through a dress rehearsal for post-landing procedures. From the left are astronauts Leroy Chiao, Koichi Wakata and Peter J.K. (Jeff) Wisoff. Four other STS-92 crewmembers were on the trainer's flight deck at this point. The seven astronauts, including Japan's Wakata, are in training for one of next year's scheduled missions involving the International Space Station (ISS).
