The orbiter Endeavour is towed toward the Orbiter Processing Facility, known as the OPF. At left is the Convoy Command Vehicle. The mobile command center is the prime vehicle to control critical communications between the orbiter, the crew and the Launch Control Center after a shuttle landing to monitor the health of the shuttle orbiter systems and to direct convoy operations at the Shuttle Landing Facility. Endeavour returned to Earth Aug. 21 from mission STS-118, landing at Kennedy at 12:32 p.m. EDT. In the OPF bay 2, Endeavour will incur thermal protection system inspections and numerous other post-flight inspections before processing starts for its next voyage into space. Endeavour will next fly on mission STS-123 targeted for Feb. 14, 2008. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller
