In the Orbiter Processing Facility, members of the STS-122 crew get information about the thermal protection system on space shuttle Atlantis (overhead). From left are Pilot Alan Poindexter, Mission Specialists Rex Walheim, Commander Stephen Frick, and Mission Specialists Hans Schlegel, Leland Melvin and Stanley Love. Schlegel represents the European Space Agency. The crew is at Kennedy to take part in a crew equipment interface test, or CEIT, which helps familiarize them with equipment and payloads for the mission. Among the activities standard to a CEIT are harness training, inspection of the thermal protection system and camera operation for planned extravehicular activities, or EVAs. STS-122 is targeted for launch in December. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
