Astronauts arrive for shuttle launch

STS-108 patch The crew of the space shuttle Endeavour arrived at the Kennedy Space Center late Sunday as preparations continue for Thursday night's launch. The seven-person crew of STS-108, including the three members of the Expedition Four space station crew, flew into KSC Sunday evening in advance of the launch, scheduled for 7:41 pm EST Thursday (0041 GMT Friday). The countdown for the launch is slated to begin Monday night. Security around the complex is the highest for a launch since a series of Department of Defense shuttle missions in the mid and late 1980s. NASA has backed off from earlier plans not to publicize the countdown or launch time, as the launch time had been published prior to the post-September 11 security enhancements.
