STS-49 mission specialist Pierre Thuot enters the airlock of Endeavour after an unsuccessful attempt to capture the 4.5 ton Intelsat IV communications satellite during an EVA with Rick Hieb on May 11, 1992. Photo was taken through the airlock hatch window. Intelsat was captured during a unique three-man EVA two days later.
