Center Director Roy Bridges greets STS-92 Commander Brian Duffy after the crew’s arrival at the KSC Shuttle Landing Facility. Behind Duffy are Mission Specialists Michael Lopez-Alegria, Jeff Wisoff and Koichi Wakata (NASDA). Next to Bridges is Michael Leinbach, the new KSC launch director. The STS-92 crew is at KSC to take part in Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT) activities. The TCDT includes emergency egress training from the orbiter and pad, plus a simulated countdown. The fifth mission to the International Space Station, STS-92 will carry the Integrated Truss Structure Z1, the first of the planned 10 trusses on the Space Station, and the third Pressurized Mating Adapter. The Z1 will allow the first U.S. solar arrays on a future flight to be temporarily installed on Unity for early power. PMA-3 will provide a Shuttle docking port for the solar array installation on the sixth ISS flight and Lab installation on the seventh ISS flight. STS-92 is scheduled to launch Oct. 5 from launch Pad 39A. It will be the 100th flight in the Shuttle program
