Slashdot Science Story | Shuttle Atlantis Lands Safely After Final Official Mission

        Yup.

    Two in the front of the flight deck (mission commander & pilot).
    Two in the rear of the flight deck (mission specialists)
    Three on the mid-deck.

    STS-71 and STS-61A had 8 on board. STS-71 used special seats on the mid-deck. I don’t know where the 8th person sat on STS-61A. I kinda doubt it was “just have a seat on the floor there, and hold on.” 🙂

Thank you to the Shuttle fleet for all our official and unofficial work in space. I see the light from the space station bright in the night sky.
