Sharon Christa McAuliffe, left, appears to be deciding what she thinks of a piece of space food she tastes during a session of interfacing with space shuttle life sciences. Barbara R. Morgan samples an apricot. The two are in early training at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) in preparation for the STS-51L spaceflight early next year. McAuliffe is prime payload specialist representing the Teacher in Space Project, and Morgan is her backup. Dr. C.T. Bourland, a dietitian specialist, assists the two.
