S98-03988 (17 March 1998) --- Fully attired in a shuttle extravehicular mobility unit (EMU) space suit, astronaut Janet L. Kavandi stands on a platform that was later used to lower her into a pool of water at the Johnson Space Center (JSC). The STS-91 mission specialist, and astronaut Franklin R. Chang-Diaz (out of frame),were in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) at the Sonny Carter Training Center, with suits equipped with their own life support system, communications gear and weights to achieve neutral buoyancy in the pool, to participate in a rehearsal of a contingency space walk for the STS-91 mission.
