With his feet anchored in a portable foot restraint on the remote manipulator system end effector, astronaut Pierre J. Thuot is pictured during one of four sessions of extravehicular activity. The STS-49 mission specialist awaits with a special grapple bar as the space shuttle Endeavour heads for a rendezvous with the Intelsat VI communications satellite (out of frame). After this second attempt failed to garner the 4.5 ton satellite, three crew members two days later teamed to successfully grab it and prepare it for release into space. A 35mm camera was used to expose the image.
