The Space Shuttle Columbia continues its morning rollout from the Vehicle
Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39B in preparation for the STS-90 mission.
The Neurolab experiments are the primary
payload on this nearly 17-day space flight. Investigations during the Neurolab mission will focus on the effects of
microgravity on the nervous system. Specifically, experiments will study the adaptation of the vestibular system, the central
nervous system, and the pathways that control the ability to sense location in the absence of gravity, as well as the effect of
microgravity on a developing nervous system.
The crew of STS-90, slated for launch April 16 at 2:19 p.m. EDT, includes
Commander Richard Searfoss, Pilot Scott Altman, Mission Specialists Richard Linnehan, Dafydd (Dave) Williams, M.D.,
and Kathryn (Kay) Hire, and Payload Specialists Jay Buckey, M.D., and James Pawelczyk, Ph.D.
