Description 97-11949 (10 Dec. 1997) --- Astronauts Jerry Ross and Jim Newman train for one of the three spacewalks they will perform as they begin assembly of the International Space Station aboard Space Shuttle mission STS-88 in July 1998. Ross and Newman are in the Sonny Carter Training Facility, a giant new swimming pool-type facility opened in 1997 at the Johnson Space Center specifically to accommodate training for station assembly. The spacewalks by Ross and Newman will finalize the connection of a module called Node 1 to be launched aboard STS-88 and the Functional Cargo Block, which will have been launched earlier aboard a Russian rocket. In this view, a mockup of the node is on the right in the foreground and a mockup of the FGB is on the left in the background.
