By   /   April 27, 2011  /   Comments

The last flight of space shuttle Endeavour is scheduled for Friday, April 29. Barring poor weather and technical issues, it should launch at 3:47 on that date from launch pad 39a at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The mission is scheduled to last for two weeks. During their flight, the six crew members of STS-134 will deliver new instruments, space parts, a high-pressure gas tank, and other parts for the International Space Station. NASA will be providing live coverage of the crew’s arrival to Kennedy tomorrow at 12:15, and can be viewed on NASA television or over the internet at www.nasa.gov/ntv.
