The astronauts and cosmonauts of STS-105 and Expedition Two and Expedition Three share some time in the Zvezda Service Module aboard the International Space Station. From left to right are cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, Expedition Three flight engineer; astronaut Susan J. Helms, Expedition Two flight engineer; astronaut Frank L. Culbertson, Jr., Expedition Three commander; cosmonaut Yury V. Usachev, Expedition Two commander; and Patrick G. Forrester, STS-105 mission specialist. Taking a brief break from busy moving chores, the astronauts and cosmonauts fashioned some liquid bubbles, which always perform interestingly in zero gravity. The image was recorded with a digital still camera.
