In the Orbiter Processing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, STS-127 Commander Mark Polansky checks the cockpit of space shuttle Endeavour.
The crew members are at Kennedy for a crew equipment interface test, which provides hands-on training and observation of shuttle and flight hardware. Endeavour will deliver the Japanese Experiment Module's Experiment Logistics Module-Exposed Section, or ELM-ES, to the International Space Station on STS-127. Launch is targeted for mid-June, 2009.
