A miniature space station

Part of the Springer Praxis Books in Space Exploration book series (PRAXIS)

Abstract

Columbia’s next flight — or rather flights — had multiple personalities, but instead of receiving attention from a doctor, it received the undivided focus of thousands of scientists, engineers, technicians, Shuttle processing workers and a close-knit team of seven astronauts. For STS-83 Mission Specialist Don Thomas, 1997 would prove to be one of the high points of his astronaut career: at the end of January, it seemed unlikely that he would be flying at all that year, but by the end of July he had flown not once, but twice!
