The seven crew members and 48 laboratory rats on board will provide scientists with an opportunity to study the effects of microgravity in a comprehensive, interrelated fashion using both human and animal subjects.

A briefing agenda is attached. All briefings will be broadcast on NASA Select television with two-way audio for questions from participating NASA locations. NASA Select is carried on GE Satcom F2R, transponder 13, 72 degrees west
