Endeavour Crew at the Cape

Commander Scott Kelly expressed the crew's pleasure at being at KSC, their hope for good weather on launch day and their appreciation to the hardworking technicians who are preparing the shuttle on Pad 39A.

"We look forward to flying (Endeavour) for all the people who have put their heart and soul into this vehicle," said Kelly.

He introduced the crew, pilot Charlie Hobaugh and five mission specialists: Tracy Caldwell, Al Drew, Rick Mastracchio, Barbara Morgan and Dave Williams of the Canadian Space Agency. At the International Space Station, the crew will install a truss, replace a gyroscope, test a power system, and deliver cargo and spare parts.
