Endeavour's Move to VAB Set for Tomorrow

Technicians at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida will hook up space shuttle Endeavour to the Orbiter Transporter System, or OTS, today. The transporter system will move the shuttle from its hangar in Orbiter Processing Facility-2 to the Vehicle Assembly Building, scheduled for 1 p.m. EST Friday.

The move, or rollover, is pending a review meeting tomorrow morning along with good weather.

The STS-130 astronauts are in the neutral buoyancy lab near NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston today training for the second of three scheduled spacewalks.

Meanwhile, Commander George Zamka and Pilot Terry Virts will practice landing techniques in the T-38 and Shuttle Training Aircraft jets.
