STS087-E-5088 (November 29, 1997) Astronauts Steven W. Lindsey (foreground) and Takao Doi are pictured during flight day 10 activities on the mid-deck of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. Doi, seated near the galley, looks over a checklist. He is a mission specialist representing Japan's National Space Development Agency (NASDA), while stationed at NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas. After having served as an alternate payload specialist, Doi became an astronaut candidate in the class of 1995. Earlier on this mission, he became the first Japanese person to perform a Extravehicular Activity (EVA). Pilot Lindsey, also a member of the 1995 class and a USAF major, is making his first space flight as well. The photograph was taken at 01:28:18 GMT.
