97-10685 (October 3, 1997) ---The first International Space Station crew, from left Soyuz Commander Yuri Gidzenko, Flight Engineer Sergei Krikalev and International Space Station Commander Bill Shepherd, practice water survival skills in the Black Sea recently. The skills would be needed in the event a Soyuz spacecraft landed in the water rather than on land as is normal. The crew is scheduled to launch to the new station in January 1999 aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
