Endeavour's Launch Countdown Preps Continue
Fri, 22 Apr 2011 05:40:53 AM PDT


Technicians on Kennedy's Launch Pad 39A carry out the final testing of systems in space shuttle Endeavour's aft section today for its schedule launch in one week.

Pressurization of Endeavour's various propulsion systems was completed yesterday and its aft 50 1/2 foot doors were installed for flight last night. Technicians are scheduled to get the weekend off before beginning prelaunch countdown preparations on Monday.

At NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Endeavour's six astronauts have administrative work to do today before going into quarantine tonight. They fly to Kennedy Tuesday morning for their final prelaunch preps.

Dunno if I'd bother photographing it, maybe a
