Extended Mission

The highlight of the week was the six hour extended mission. Here's the official Marshall IX Team mission photograph.

Of course with all missions, you need to tuck into the traditional steak and eggs breakfast first,


though remembering to leave room for a piece of the mission cake later on.


One of the twists in the extended mission over the training missions is the medical emergencies which could hit any team member at any time. Here I am being treated for a heart attack!


Fortunately, the medical assistance provided was of the highest quality and I was back up on the flight deck in no time.


Once docking with the space station had been completed it was back to Mission Control for the second half of the mission.
