Space Shuttle Endeavour crew arrives at Kennedy Space Center

Posted:

The crew of space shuttle Endeavour arrived in Florida Thursday morning. Endeavour is scheduled to launch Monday at 8:56 a.m. on a 16-day mission to the International Space Station.

Endeavour's STS-134 mission crew, Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Gregory H. Johnson and Mission Specialists Michael Fincke, Greg Chamitoff, Andrew Feustel and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori, arrived at Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility around 9 a.m.

During the 16-day mission, Endeavour and its crew will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) and spare parts including two S-band communications antennas, a high-pressure gas tank and additional spare parts for Dextre.

Commander Mark Kelly is married to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was critically wounded in Tucson in January. The congresswoman's staff says she will return for the next launch attempt.
