The STS-124 crew holds a good-luck banner presented to Mission Specialist Karen Nyberg that was created and signed by students at Henning Public School in the town of Henning, Minn. Holding the banner are (from left) Mission Specialist Mike Fossum, Pilot Ken Ham, Commander Mark Kelly, Nyberg, Mission Specialists Ron Garan, Akihiko Hoshide and Greg Chamitoff. Hoshide represents the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. In the background is the 300-gallon water tower (left) and the fixed service structure. The crew is at Kennedy for a dress launch rehearsal called the terminal countdown demonstration test. TCDT provides astronauts and ground crews with an opportunity to participate in various simulated countdown activities, including equipment familiarization and emergency training. On the STS-124 mission, the crew will deliver and install the Japanese Experiment Module – Pressurized Module and Japanese Remote Manipulator System. Discovery's launch is targeted for May 31.
