Summary

STS031-83-090 (24-29 April 1990) --- This late afternoon scene over the Andes Mountains features sun glare, heavy cloud illumination and sunglint against the Pacific Ocean. This photo was among those selected by the crew members for showing at their May 9, 1990, Post-Flight Press Conference (PFPC) at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) Public Affairs Office (PAO) Facility briefing room. Onboard the Space Shuttle Discovery for the flight, which lifted off on April 24, 1990, and landed on April 29, 1990, were astronauts Loren J. Shriver, Charles F. Bolden, Jr., Bruce McCandless II, Kathryn D. Sullivan and Steven A. Hawley. Some of the slides were not actually shown due to a shortage of time.
