Underwater Thumbs Up

August 3, 2005
Three STS-114 astronauts give a simultaneous thumbs-up signal during an underwater training session in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. From left: Soichi Noguchi, Steve Robinson -- holding the mission symbol -- and AndyThomas.

Noguchi and Robinson are prepping for three scheduled spacewalks on the mission. Thomas, working inside the Space Shuttle Discovery's cabin, will serve as the lead robotics officer for the inspection of the Orbiter's thermal protection system using a new boom extension outfitted with sensors and cameras. He will also serve helping to suit up and choreograph spacewalkers Noguchi and Robinson for their spacewalks.
