 STS-107 Crew Goes to Work

STS-107 began Thursday when Space Shuttle Columbia successfully launched
from Kennedy Space Center, Fla. Shortly after reaching orbit, the
seven-member STS-107 crew began preparing for mission operations. They
opened Columbia's payload bay doors, unpacked equipment and began
activating the SPACEHAB Double Research Module, which houses equipment
for 59 of the 80-plus experiments that will be performed during the
16-day mission. 

Throughout the mission, the STS-107 crew will be split into two shifts so
that 24-hour operations can be conducted. Pilot Willie McCool and Mission
Specialists Dave Brown and Mike Anderson make up the Blue Team, and the
Red Team consists of Commander Rick Husband, Mission Specialists Kalpana
Chawla and Laurel Clark, and Payload Specialist Ilan Ramon.
