During emergency egress training at Launch pad 39A, STS-101 Pilot Scott J. "Doc" Horowitz and Mission Specialist Yury Usachev stand in the slidewire basket at the landing zone. The Safety Egress officer (left on ground) provides training on use of the basket in the event the crew needed to exit quickly from the fixed service structure (background) at the 195-foot level. The rest of the crew, clockwise at right, are Commander James D. Halsell Jr. and Mission Specialists Jeffrey N. Williams, James Voss, Susan Helms, and (back to the camera) Mary Ellen Weber. The training is part of Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT) activities that include a simulated launch countdown and familiarization with the payload. During their mission to the International Space Station, the STS-101 crew will be delivering logistics and supplies, plus preparing the Station for the arrival of the Zvezda Service Module, expected to be launched by Russia in July 2000. Also, the crew will conduct one space walk to perform maintenance on the Space Station. This will be the third assembly flight for the Space Station. STS-101 is scheduled to launch April 24 at 4:15 p.m. from Launch Pad 39A
