The photo behind that crew of STS-62A ... is that an enclosure that goes around the shuttle @ the pad?  Why have I never seen this before... Any other photos or links to information about this?  I guess I'm showing my limits of Shuttle knowledge but hey... gotta ask or I'll never know ;)

The STS-62-A crew would have been the first crew to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. That is where the photo is taken. It is Space Launch Complex 6, which is the California pad the Shuttle would have launched from. Enterprise actually spent several months on that pad as part of compatibality checks between the shuttle vehicle and launch pad. I hope this clarifies things for you a bit. ;)

STS-51F

9 astronauts in the picture! Why 9 ?;-)
Only 7 flew on challenger STS-51F. Who were the other 2 ?  --- the lady and one gentleman ?

There were two Alternate Payload Specialists (APSes), in case either of the two PSes on 51F (Acton and Bartoe) was unfit to fly. I forget their names.

LOL- these are great!  Humorous and historic.
Dick Truly's cat (if it is his cat; maybe they just found it behind the building) looks really unhappy about the whole deal on the STS-8 shot.
The Santas in sunglasses for 32 look more like ZZ Top. :)
