STS109-E-5468 (4 March 2002) --- Having just arrived back on board the crew cabin of the Space Shuttle Columbia,
the first team of assigned space walkers
for STS-109 talk about their shared seven-hour extravehicular activity while still attired in their thermal undergarments. Astronauts John M. Grunsfeld (left) and Richard M. Linnehan just completed the first of five scheduled STS-109 space walks to work on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), successfully replacing the starboard solar array on the giant telescope. The next day's assignment will feature replacement of the port array by astronauts James H. Newman and Michael J. Massimino (both out of frame), whose extravehicular mobility unit (EMU)space suits can be seen stowed on the mid deck. This image was recorded with a digital still camera.
