Media representatives turn out to interview astronaut Kay Hire at the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Preparations are under way for space shuttle Endeavour's upcoming ferry flight atop NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, or SCA.
The SCA, a modified 747 jetliner, will fly Endeavour to Los Angeles where it will be placed on public display at the California Science Center. This is the final ferry flight scheduled in the Space Shuttle Program era. For more information on the shuttles' transition and retirement, visit http://www.nasa.gov/transition.
