STS-134 Commander Mark Kelly, left, and Mission Specialist Michael Fincke prepare to depart the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard a T-38 jet. While at Kennedy, space shuttle Endeavour's crew participated in a launch countdown dress rehearsal called the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT) and related training. The pair will return to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston to resume training for their upcoming mission.

Endeavour and its six STS-134 crew members will deliver the Express Logistics Carrier-3, Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS), a high-pressure gas tank, additional spare parts for the Dextre robotic helper and micrometeoroid debris shields to the International Space Station. This will be the final spaceflight for Endeavour. Launch is targeted for April 29 at 3:47 p.m. EDT. For more information visit, www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/sts134/index.html.
