[Caption] Astronaut Mark C. Lee tests the new Simplified Aid for EVA Rescue (SAFER) system some 130 nautical miles above Earth. The forward cargo bay is reflected in Lee’s helmet visor in the 35mm frame, exposed through the Space Shuttle Discovery’s aft flight deck windows. Part of the hardware for the LIDAR-in-space Technology Experiment (LITE) is in center foreground. Astronauts Lee and Carl J. Meade took turns using the SAFER hardware during their shared spacewalk of September 16, 1994. The STS-64 test of SAFER is the first phase of a larger SAFER programme whose objectives are to establish a common set of requirements for both space shuttle and space station programme needs, develop a flight demonstration of SAFER, validate system performance and, finally, develop a production version of SAFER for the shuttle and stations programmes.

Condition: small light stain to bottom left margin, otherwise mint
