What I want to be when I grow up . . .

Installation Day. It was "installation day" on the International Space Station.
The Atlantis and Expedition 13 crews worked on attaching the P3/P4 truss
during the first of three scheduled spacewalks by STS-115 shuttle crew members
on Sept. 12, 2006. Mission specialist, Astronaut Joseph R. Tanner, pictured
as he translated along the station hardware, later was joined by mission
specialist Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper.

Self Portrait. Astronaut Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper,
STS-115 mission specialist, took this self-portrait . The mission
specialist had just unstowed the forward Solar Array Blanket Box
(SABB) when this portrait, taken on a Sept. 12 space walk that
marked the resumption of construction on the International Space Station.
She shared the day's work with astronaut Joseph R. Tanner, who appears
just below the glare in her helmet visor. The two participated in the first
of three scheduled STS-115 extravehicular activity (EVA) sessions as the
astronauts and the Expedition 13 crew members join efforts this week
to resume construction of the International Space Station.
