JSC2003-E-63402 (18 November 2003) --- Astronaut Scott E. Parazynski, wearing a training version of the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) space suit, participates in Return to Flight training onboard a KC-135 aircraft near Johnson Space Center (JSC). The aircraft flew a series of special parabolas to afford a number of zero-g “windows” for rehearsing extravehicular activity (EVA) tasks for repairing damaged Shuttle tiles. Dominic (Dom) Del Rosso (right), assistant Test Director for the Reduced Gravity Office, assisted Parazynski.
