On the slidewire basket bunker area of Launch Pad 39A, the STS-118 crew talks to the media before the crew's morning training activities in the terminal countdown demonstration test, or TCDT. At right, Mission Specialist Tracy Caldwell has the microphone. The others, from left, are Commander Scott Kelly, Pilot Charlie Hobaugh and Mission Specialists Alvin Drew, Rick Mastracchio, Dave Williams and Barbara Morgan. Williams represents the Canadian Space Agency. Morgan joined NASA's Teacher in Space program in 1985 and was selected as an astronaut in 1998. TCDT activities include M-113 training, payload familiarization, the emergency egress training at the pad and a simulated launch countdown. The mission is the 22nd flight to the International Space Station and Space Shuttle Endeavour will carry a payload including the S5 truss, a SPACEHAB module and external stowage platform 3. STS-118 is targeted for launch on Aug. 7. NASA/George Shelton
