After addressing the media at the Shuttle Landing Facility, the STS-99 crew wave goodbye as they leave for crew quarters in the Operations and Checkout Building. The crew is ready to prepare for the second launch attempt of Endeavour Feb. 11 at 12:30 p.m. EST from Launch Pad 39A. The earlier launch scheduled for Jan. 31 was scrubbed due to poor weather and a faulty Enhanced Master Events Controller in the orbiter's aft compartment. Over the next few days, the crew will review mission procedures, conduct test flights in the Shuttle Training Aircraft and undergo routine preflight medical exams. STS-99 is the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, which will produce unrivaled 3-D images of the Earth's surface. The result of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission could be close to 1 trillion measurements of the Earth's topography. Landing is expected at KSC on Feb. 22 at 4:36 p.m. EST KSC-00pp0174

The globe is being signed by the entire crew as a gift for Delores Abraham, with Crew Quarters. STS-99, known as the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), is scheduled for liftoff at 12:30 p.m. EST from Launch Pad 39A. The SRTM will chart a new course to produce unrivaled 3-D images of the Earth's surface. The result of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission could be close to 1 trillion measurements of the Earth's topography.

The STS-97 crew are ready to enjoy a snack in the crew quarters, Operations and Checkout Building, before beginning to suit up for launch. Seated from left are Mission Specialists Marc Garneau and Carlos Noriega, Commander Brent Jett, Mission Specialist Joseph Tanner and Pilot Michael Bloomfield. Garneau is with the Canadian Space Agency. Mission STS-97 is the sixth construction flight to the International Space Station. It is transporting the P6 Integrated Truss Structure that comprises Solar Array Wing-3 and the Integrated Electronic Assembly, to be installed on the Space Station. The solar arrays are mounted on a “blanket” that can be folded like an accordion for delivery. Once in orbit, astronauts will deploy the blankets to their full size. The 11-day mission includes two spacewalks to complete the solar array connections. The Station’s electrical power system will use eight photovoltaic solar arrays, each 112 feet long by 39 feet wide, to convert sunlight to electricity.. Gimbals will be used to rotate the arrays so that they will face the Sun to provide maximum power to the Space Station. Launch is scheduled for Nov. 30 at 10:06 p.m. EST KSC-00pp1778

Expedition Two crew Commander Yury Usachev gives a thumbs up from the crew quarters in the Operations and Checkout Building following his return to Earth with the STS-105 crew aboard the orbiter Discovery.  The Expedition Two crew have spent the past five months living and working on the International Space Station.  Mission STS-105 came to a close upon landing at KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility runway 15 after a 4.3-million-mile mission to the International Space Station. Main gear touchdown was at 2:22:58 p.m.EDT; wheel stop, at 2:24:06 p.m. EDT.  The 11-day, 21-hour, 12-minute STS-105 mission accomplished the goals set for the 11th flight to the International Space Station: swapout of the resident Station crew; delivery of equipment, supplies and scientific experiments; and installation of the Early Ammonia Servicer and heater cables for the S0 truss on the Station. Discovery completed its 30th flight into space, the 106th mission of the Space Shuttle program. Out of five missions in 2001, the landing was the first to occur in daylight at KSC KSC01padig276

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - At the KSC Shuttle Landing Facility, STS-111 Mission Specialist Philippe Perrin, with the French Space Agency, waits for the rest of the crew before departing for Crew Quarters.  The crew has arrived to prepare for launch. Mission STS-111, known as Utilization Flight 2, is carrying supplies and equipment to the International Space Station. The payload includes the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo, the Mobile Base System, which will be installed on the Mobile Transporter to complete the Canadian Mobile Servicing System, or MSS, and a replacement wrist/roll joint for Canadarm 2. The mechanical arm will then have the capability to "inchworm" from the U.S. Lab Destiny to the MSS and travel along the truss to work sites. Also on board will be Expedition 5, traveling to the Station on Space Shuttle Endeavour as the replacement crew for Expedition 4, who will return to Earth aboard the orbiter. Launch is scheduled for May 30, 2002 KSC-02pd0769
