Astronauts Stephanie D. Wilson and Michael E. Fossum, STS-121 mission specialists, pose for a photo on the aft flight deck of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Fossum, a graduate of Texas A&M University, flashes the traditional "Gig 'Em, Aggies!" sign and wears an A&M cap, while UT alumnus Wilson gives the "Hook 'Em, Horns!" sign and wears the Longhorn cap. The two joked about the long-standing rivalry of their respective alma maters and have expressed looking forward to the Nov. 24 matchup between the two Big Twelve powers.
