Detail View: NASA Kennedy Center Media Archive Collection: In the Operations and Checkout Building, the STS-101 crew gathers for a snack before suiting up for launch for the third time. The previous two launch attempts were scrubbed due to high cross winds at the Shuttle Landing Facility. From left are Mission Specialists James S. Voss, Susan J. Helms and Jeffrey N. Williams; Commander James D. Halsell Jr.; Pilot Scott J. Horowitz; and Mission Specialists Mary Ellen Weber and Yury Usachev of Russia. The mission will take the crew to the International Space Station to deliver logistics and supplies and prepare the Station for the arrival of the Zvezda Service Module. Also, the crew will conduct one space walk. This is the third assembly flight to the Space Station. After the 10-day mission, Atlantis is expected to land at KSC May 6 at about 12:03 p.m. EDT
