Practice Makes Perfect
The six-member crew of the next space shuttle mission participated in a full launch dress rehearsal, known as the terminal countdown demonstration test at the NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The test provided an opportunity for the crew and ground teams to participate in various simulated countdown activities, including equipment familiarization, emergency training and a simulated launch countdown. Endeavours crew members are Commander George Zamka, Pilot Terry Virts and Mission Specialists Robert Behnken, Nicholas Patrick, Kathryn Hire and Stephen Robinson. Launch is targeted for Feb. 7.
