Endeavor's Crew Returns to KSC

All Systems Go for Monday’s launch!

The countdown has resumed for the shuttle launch on Monday, May 16, 2011 at 0856 a.m. EDT from Launch Pad 39A at KSC in Florida. Technicians will begin loading Endeavour’s external fuel tank today.
Endeavour’s crew returned to Florida yesterday and will practice shuttle landings and review the shuttle’s ingress plan with the Vehicle Integration Test Team this morning.
This is the Shuttle’s 36th tour of duty to the ISS during which Endeavour will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, spare parts, two S-band communications antennas, a high pressure gas tank, and micrometeoroid debris shields. All is functioning smoothly for Monday’s launch.
