Astronauts James S. Voss (left) and James M. Kelly share a friendly moment onboard the International Space Station's U.S. laboratory Destiny in spite of the long-standing academic/athletic rivalry between their respective alma maters--Auburn University and the University of Alabama. Voss, STS-102 mission specialist-turned Expedition Two flight engineer and a 1972 alumnus of Auburn with a bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering, sports a T-shirt paying tribute to his university. Kelly, STS-102 pilot and masters of science degree graduate in aerospace engineering from the University of Alabama in 1996, is wearing a cap from that institution of higher learning.
