Astronaut Nancy J. Currie, mission specialist, remains very near the controls for Columbia's Remote Manipulator System (out of frame) on the crew cabin's aft flight deck. On a week with one lengthy space walk per day, Currie has had her hands full with RMS duties to support the space walks of four crewmates. A short time later on this day, astronauts James H. Newman and Michael J. Massimino began EVA-4, during which the duo required the services of Currie to control the robotic arm to maneuver them around the various work stations on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The image was recorded with a digital still camera.
