Caption: Japanese astronaut on Shuttle Mission STS-65.

IML-2 contained several experiments from Japanese Universities and research centres. Dr Mukai is seen here holding a cassette box containing bean sprouts, part of an experiment into how plant growth is affected by the microgravity conditions in orbit. STS-65 flew on 8-23 July 1994.
