The STS-134 Mission Specialist Roberto Vittori, with the European Space Agency, participates in a media question-and-answer session in the Press Site TV auditorium at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The crew was scheduled to answer questions at Launch Pad 39A, where space shuttle Endeavour is awaiting liftoff, but severe storms associated with a frontal system passing over Central Florida brought the media event indoors.
Endeavour's six crew members are at Kennedy for the launch countdown dress rehearsal called the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT) and related training. Targeted to launch April 19 at 7:48 p.m. EDT, they 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 is the final spaceflight for Endeavour. For more information visit, www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/sts134/index.html. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
