I hope this was an astronaut thing, rather than a PAO thing as they looked a bit silly in some of those photos.

Great pictures !

S82-41355 (December 1982) --- The four crewmembers for NASA's STS-6 mission go through a training exercise in the full-scale engineering mockup in the Shuttle mockup and integration laboratory at the Johnson Space Center (JSC). Their seating configuration reflects that of launch and landing phases aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger. The front stations are occupied by Astronauts Paul J. Weitz (left), commander, and Karol J. Bobko, pilot. In the rear seats are astronauts Story Musgrave and Donald H. Peterson, both mission specialists. STS-6 will be the Challenger's first flight when it takes this crew and a tracking and data relay satellite (TDRS) into Earth orbit the early part of next year.

Yes the picture is on other place on the internet, but not in this resolution :)

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 ;)
