KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. ? In the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA Kennedy Space Center, an overhead crane lifts the right aft booster segments (aft skirt and aft motor segment). The segments, to be used with space shuttle Discovery on mission STS-121, will be installed on the mobile launcher platform in Bay 3.Mission STS-121 is the second space shuttle mission in the return-to-flight sequence. The booster assembly is a major milestone in the processing sequence that leads to launch. The launch date is targeted no earlier than May. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. ? In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA Kennedy Space Center, workers place bags on the racks for installation in the multi-purpose logistics module Leonardo. The module is being prepared for the second return-to-flight mission, STS-121, on space shuttle Discovery, carrying more than two tons of equipment and supplies to the International Space Station. This will be the fourth trip to the station for Leonardo, the first of three Italian-built logistic modules. Equipment and supplies no longer needed on the station will be moved to Leonardo before it is unberthed on Flight Day 10 and put back into Discovery's cargo bay for return to Earth. This second return-to-flight test mission is to carry on analysis of safety improvements that debuted on the first return-to-flight mission, STS-114, and build upon those tests. The launch is targeted for a date no earlier than May. Photo credit: NASA/George Shelton

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. ? During kickoff of the NASA Explorer School program at Warrington Middle School in Pensacola, Fla., NASA aerospace specialist Les Gold involves a student in a demonstration on stage. Gold, Center Director Jim Kennedy, astronaut Alan Poindexter and others are visiting the school to share the vision for space exploration with the next generation. He is talking with students about our destiny as explorers, NASA?s stepping stone approach to exploring Earth, the moon, Mars and beyond, how space impacts our lives, and how people and machines rely on each other in space. NES establishes a three-year partnership annually between NASA and 50 NASA Explorer School teams, consisting of teachers and education administrators from diverse communities nationwide.
