KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- Dressed in their launch and entry suits, STS-118 Pilot Charlie Hobaugh and Commander Scott Kelly (waving) are headed for the runway for landing practice in the shuttle training aircraft, known as an STA. The practice is part of Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test, or TCDT, activities that include a simulated launch countdown. The STA is a Grumman American Aviation-built Gulf Stream II jet that was modified to simulate an orbiter's cockpit, motion and visual cues, and handling qualities. In flight, the STA duplicates the orbiter's atmospheric descent trajectory from approximately 35,000 feet altitude to landing on a runway. The STS-118 mission is the 22nd flight to the International Space Station and is targeted for launch on Aug. 7. The mission payload aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour includes the S5 truss, a SPACEHAB module and external stowage platform 3. NASA/George Shelton

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. -- The STS-118 crew walks out of the Operations and Checkout Building, heading for Launch Pad 39A and a simulated launch countdown. On the left, Pilot Charlie Hobaugh leads one column, with Mission Specialist Rick Mastracchio behind him. On the right, Commander Scott Kelly leads, with Mission Specialists Tracy Caldwell and Dave Williams behind. Not pictured are Mission Specialists Alvin Drew and teacher-turned-astronaut Barbara R. Morgan. The countdown concludes the terminal countdown demonstration test, or TCDT. The STS-118 crew has been at Kennedy for the TCDT activities that also include M-113 training, payload familiarization and emergency egress training at the pad. The mission is the 22nd flight to the International Space Station and Space Shuttle Endeavour will carry a payload including the S5 truss, a SPACEHAB module and external stowage platform 3.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the White Room on Launch Pad 39A, STS-118 Commander Scott Kelly is helped with his launch gear by the closeout crew before he enters Space Shuttle Endeavour. The outer end of the orbiter access arm ends in an environmental chamber (the White Room) that mates with the orbiter and allows personnel to enter the crew compartment. With assistance, each member of the flight crew dons a parachute pack before crawling through the open hatch into the shuttle. The closeout crew also straps the astronauts into the space shuttle's crew module and takes care of any other last-minute needs that arise. Space Shuttle Endeavour's STS-118 mission is the 22nd shuttle flight to the International Space Station. It will continue space station construction by delivering a third starboard truss segment, S5, and other payloads such as the SPACEHAB module and the external stowage platform 3. Liftoff of Endeavour is scheduled at 6:36 p.m. EDT. Photo credit: NASA/John Kechele, Scott Haun, Tom Farrar

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- With drag chute sailing behind, Endeavour rolls down runway 15 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in a picture-perfect landing. The Space Shuttle Endeavour crew, led by Commander Scott Kelly, completes a 13-day mission to the International Space Station. The STS-118 mission began Aug. 8 and installed a new gyroscope, an external spare parts platform and another truss segment to the expanding station. Endeavour's main gear touched down at 12:32:16 p.m. EDT. Nose gear touchdown was at 12:32:29 p.m. and wheel stop was at 12:33:20 p.m. Endeavour traveled nearly 5.3 million miles, landing on orbit 201. STS-118 was the 119th space shuttle flight, the 22nd flight to the station, the 20th flight for Endeavour and the second of four missions planned for 2007. This was the 65th landing of an orbiter at Kennedy. Photo credit: NASA/John Kechele, Scott Haun
