Feb. 15, 2007- Pics from work

Offloading hazardous fuel and oxidizer from Discovery- we have to wear these rubber like outfits called SCAPE suits,

with supplied air bottles and backpacks,

take a cheesy picture,

then get taken to the work area in SCAPE vans like this one:

The suit and pack together weigh about 60 pounds, while the suit itself weighs about 25 lbs. It can be a good workout walking up and down the stairs in one of these things!
