My second SMS flow was a wonderful experience. This first ISS assembly mission was dependent on
the Russians launching the FGB, which kept slipping, so it was a long flow. The crew became
extremely proficient and we had to really stretch ourselves to challenge them. This was the first
time the ISS training simulator, the SSTF, had been used, and we definitely had some challenges getting
it to integrate properly with the SMS, especially the systems models.

I was out of town for the official photos so the crew took this one with me. Ironically, Sergei
Krikalev and Jim Newman were out of town for this one.
