Crew Arrives Tuesday For Countdown Test
At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, workers at Launch Pad
39A started closeout work on space shuttle Endeavour's aft section
Monday in preparation for Tuesday's STS-134 crew arrival.
Endeavour's six astronauts are scheduled to arrive at Kennedy's
Shuttle Landing Facility Tuesday at approximately 1900 EDT to begin
the full-dress launch rehearsal and other related training called
Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test, or TCDT.
During the 14-day mission, Endeavour's astronauts will deliver
to the International Space Station the Alpha Magnetic
Spectrometer-2, a particle physics detector designed to search for
various types of unusual matter by measuring cosmic rays and the
Express Logistics Carrier-3, a platform that carries spare parts
that will sustain station operations once the shuttles are retired
later this year.
Endeavour's final flight, on the STS-134 mission to the
International Space Station, is targeted to launch at 7:48 p.m. EDT
