The STS-108 crew members take a break from their training to pose for their pre-flight portrait. Astronauts Dominic L. Gorie (right) and Mark E. Kelly, commander and pilot, respectively, are seated in front. In the rear are astronauts Linda M. Godwin and Daniel L. Tani, both mission specialists. The four will spend approximately ten days in space in late November and early December aboard the Endeavour. They will be accompanied to the International Space Station by the Expedition Four crew, which will remain on board the orbital outpost for several months. The Expedition Three crewmembers, currently on the station, will come home with the STS-108 astronauts.
