KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Swordtail fish (Xiphophorus helleri), like those that are part of the Neurolab payload on Space Shuttle Mission STS-90, are shown in their holding tanks in the Operations and Checkout Building. The fish will fly in the Closed Equilibrated Biological Aquatic System (CEBAS) Minimodule, a middeck locker-sized fresh water habitat, designed to allow the controlled incubation of aquatic species in a self-stabilizing, artifical ecosystem for up to three weeks under space conditions. Investigations during the Neurolab mission will focus on the effects of microgravity on the nervous system. The crew of STS-90, slated for launch April 16 at 2:19 p.m. EDT, include Commander Richard Searfoss, Pilot Scott Altman, Mission Specialists Richard Linnehan, D.V.M., Dafydd (Dave) Williams, M.D., and Kathryn (Kay) Hire, and Payload Specialists Jay Buckey, M.D., and James Pawelczyk, Ph.D KSC-98pc411

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Brown pelicans enjoy a respite from the winter temperatures at the Turn Basin in Launch Complex 39 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  Behind them is the Pegasus barge, often used to transport the space shuttle's external tanks into the basin, and NASA's News Center.    The brown pelican is found along the coast in California and from North Carolina to Texas, Mexico, the West Indies and many Caribbean Islands, as well as Guyana and Venezuela in South America.  It is listed as endangered only in Louisiana, Mississippi, and in the Caribbean.  The species is considered to be long-lived.  One pelican captured in Edgewater, Fla., in November 1964, was found to have been banded in September 1933, over 31 years previously. Individuals can weigh up to eight pounds, with larger pelicans having wing spreads of over seven feet.  Their nests are usually built in mangrove trees, but ground nesting may also occur.  Nesting takes place mostly in early spring or summer with the male carrying nesting materials to the female.  Although the female builds the nest, both share in incubation and rearing duties.  The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge coexists with Kennedy Space Center and provides a habitat for 330 species of birds including brown pelicans.
