Pictured on the front row are astronauts Charlie Hobaugh (left), commander; and Barry Wilmore, pilot. From the left (back row) are astronauts Leland Melvin, Mike Foreman, Robert Satcher and Randy Bresnik, all mission specialists.

Okay, one of the flight's wake-up calls better be "(Standing on) Top of the World" by Van Halen.

Quite sharp. Very heroic looking. No insignia though? Or will that be included in the final version.

Nice! First thing I thought when I saw that shuttle logo in the middle was the STS-107 patch. Any connection or just a standard shuttle outline?

The artwork in the center is the crew shirt logo based on the patch design.

The overhead camera angle looks great. I wish it had been used in more crew photos. I think STS-51F and STS-43 were the only others taken at that angle.
