Forty-plus flight controllers comprising the International Space Station (ISS) flight 6A planning team take a break from a simulation to pose for a group shot in the ISS flight control room of the Mission Control Center (MCC). Flight director Robert (Bob) Castle (right side of aisle opening) is joined by spacecraft communicator (CAPCOM) Robert Thirsk (kneeling, second left at aisle opening) and over three dozen other experts filling various positions for the scheduled April visit to the orbital outpost. Thirsk is with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
