Pictured in the burnt-orange pressure suits are Yuri Gidzenko (center), Soyuz commander; and Sergei Krikalev, flight engineer. At left is astronaut Andrew S.W. Thomas who assisted the crew members in this training session. Gidzenko, Krikalev and astronaut William Shepherd (not in picture), mission commander, were training for descent procedures, both routine and contigency measures, in the session. Their stay aboard ISS will conclude when they return to Earth aboard a shuttle.
