> Well, I looked for a bit, but the only reference that I could find to a shuttle tour was for Columbia STS-90, not STS-107. No matter, I'll take your word for it. 


Of course this tour was not recreated before a new sts mission was 
launched.

> Even with two EVA suits, it probably would have been too risky to perform an EVA, since none aboard had trained in EVA suits for the mission, but had probably trained in running experiments instead. Maybe the pilot and commander, but I doubt that any of the specialists were trained in EVA.

Well, remember Appollo 13. They could improvise. But who decides which 
one will be one of these and which one will have to stay in the shuttle. 
I think at least the commader has to stay as he would be able to try a 
reentry into atmosphere.
