This two-sided cue card used during training provided mission commander Brent Jett a convenient reference to performing a reaction control system (RCS) burn as he maneuvered Endeavour to a rendezvous (and eventual docking) with the International Space Station (ISS). The card's reverse offers a worksheet for tracking RCS fuel consumption. Two hook velcro pads on each side of the card allowed for Jett to position it on the cockpit's panel.
