The crew of the final shuttle mission traveled to Moscow for a suit fit check of their Russian Sokol spacesuits which would be required in the event of an emergency. Walheim's name appears first in English and then in Russian on his suit. The order is reversed on the suits of Russian cosmonauts. Photo credit: NASA Photo/Houston Chronicle, Smiley N. Pool
