A profile of the six members of the STS-133 crew that’ll fly space shuttle Discovery to the International Space Station. Discovery’s commander is Steve Lindsey: Eric Boe is pilot. Rounding out the crew are Mission Specialists Alvin Drew, Mike Barratt, Tim Kopra and Nicole Stott. All have prior spaceflight experience. STS-133 will carry and install the Permanent Multipurpose Module, critical spare components for the station and deliver R2, the first human-like robot, who’ll become a permanent space station resident.
