Astronauts Joseph P. Allen, IV and Dale A. Gardner posing with a 'For Sale' sign on the Remote Manipulation System (RMS) after recovering two satellites from orbit. The Palapa B2 and Westar 6 communications satellites had been deployed in a lower-than-planned orbit during a previous mission. This was the 14 space shuttle flight (STS-51-A), and Space Shuttle Discovery's second flight. It launched from the Kennedy Space Centre (KSC) on 8th November 1984, and landed back at KSC on 16th November. Photographed on 15th November 1984.
