Details

Six astronauts were preparing for mission STS-72; they would escape Earth on the Endeavour space shuttle with a mission to bring back a Japanese research spacecraft. The crew were welcoming, albeit focused on the fast-approaching launch day. I was in a privileged position to observe this closely bonded group at a critical time in the history of the Space Shuttle program.

I revisited the work during the Covid19. I found many images I had overlooked that are now being seen for the first time. Furthermore, while researching the mission history, I uncovered hundreds of images held at the US National Archives made in Earth’s orbit and captured by the original STS-72 crew. Twenty-five years on, I believe my access allowed me to capture a unique intimacy among the rarely-seen astronauts.
