Members of the STS-111 and Expedition 5 crews take part in emergency egress training on Launch Pad 39A. From Expedition 5 are, left, in the blue suit, Sergei Treschev and, center, Peggy Whitson. At right is Mission Commander Kenneth Cockrell. The training is part of Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test activities for the two crews. The TCDT also includes a simulated launch countdown. Mission STS-111 is known as Utilization Flight 2, carrying supplies and equipment in the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo to the International Space Station. The payload also includes the Mobile Base System, which will be installed on the Mobile Transporter to complete the Canadian Mobile Servicing System, or MSS, and a replacement wrist/roll joint for Canadarm 2. The mechanical arm will then have the capability to "inchworm" from the U.S. Lab Destiny to the MSS and travel along the truss to work sites. Expedition 5 will travel to the Station on Endeavour as the replacement crew for Expedition 4, who will return to Earth aboard the orbiter. Launch is scheduled for May 30, 2002
