AAPG once again was represented in space as astronaut Jim Reilly, a former geologist for Enserch, took his second ride on a space shuttle -- this time, serving as a mission specialist on a mission (STS-104) to the International Space Station. Once there, Reilly and fellow astronaut Michael L. Gernhardt performed tasks that included several space walks. The cover photo, featuring a silhouetted aft portion of a space shuttle as it docks with the space station that Reilly helped assemble, was captured with a 30 mm lens on a 70mm camera.
