Preps for the STS-130 Mission Continue

Endeavour is lowered onto the mobile launcher platform
Technicians at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida are testing the electrical connections on space shuttle Endeavour in the Vehicle Assembly Building.

The vehicle and its solid rocket boosters will be powered-up for the shuttle interface test and the twin boosters hydraulic systems will be tested for leaks today.

Meanwhile, at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, the six STS-130 mission astronauts will conduct a deorbit preparation simulation attired in their orange launch-and-landing suits.
