Dale Cupido:

I had an early start to the morning! Karen and Mark started preparing for Mark's last Zero-Gravity Flight at about 7h00 this morning. This was a great opportunity to capture the preparation on DV Cam, as Mark was going to the Holter (Russian) and Polar ECG Equipment. Well, someone had to be the cameraman... so up I got!

Soon after they left for the actual flight, Karl and I made our way to RSC Energia, to continue our discussions regarding Mark's Payload. Today was also the day for handing over the SONY PD150 DV Camera, to be transported on the Soyuz. Unfortunately, we could only hand over this piece of equipment after lunch, as Mark took the camera with him on-board.
