JOHNSON SPACE CENTER, Houston, Texas ---  STS125-S-002 (9 Oct. 2007) --- These seven astronauts take a break from training to pose for the STS-125 crew portrait. From the left are astronauts Michael J. Massimino and Michael T. Good, both mission specialists; Gregory C. Johnson, pilot; Scott D. Altman, commander; and K. Megan McArthur, John M. Grunsfeld and Andrew J. Feustel, all mission specialists. The STS-125 mission will be the final space shuttle mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. KSC-08pd0904

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Astronaut Andrew Feustel (right) thanks NASCAR driver Kurt Busch (center) for his views about his pending "hot laps" in an official track vehicle around the Daytona International Speedway.  Feustel is participating in NASCAR's Preseason Thunder Fan Fest at.  Feustel's appearance celebrates NASA's 50th anniversary and the speedway's 50th running of the Daytona 500 in February.  Besides the driving experience, Feuster will meet with fans and the media.  The NASA/NASCAR association spans decades. Technology developed for the space program has helped NASCAR drivers increase their performance and stay safe over the years. They wear cooling suits similar to what astronauts wear during a spacewalk. Foam that NASA developed for aircraft seats protects racecar drivers' necks in crashes. In addition to participating in the fan festival, NASA will fly three Daytona 500 flags aboard an upcoming space shuttle flight. Speedway officials plan to wave one of the flags to begin the 2008 installment of the Daytona 500, while another will be presented to the winning driver. NASA will keep the third.  Feustel will fly on the space shuttle mission STS-125 to the Hubble Space Telescope. The mission will extend and improve the observatory's capabilities through 2013. Launch is targeted for August 2008.  Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton KSC-08pd0013

Crew members are Commander Scott Altman, Pilot Gregory C. Johnson, and Mission Specialists Michael Good, Megan McArthur, John Grunsfeld, Mike Massimino (reaching toward the airlock) and Andrew Feustel. Atlantis is targeted to launch Oct. 8 on the STS-125 mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope. The mission crew will perform history-making, on-orbit “surgery” on two important science instruments aboard the telescope.  After capturing the telescope, two teams of spacewalking astronauts will perform the repairs during five planned spacewalks.    Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett KSC-08pd1961
