STS-111 rollout of Endeavour (NASA/KSC) The space shuttle Endeavour was rolled out to the launch pad Monday as preparations for its launch in late May continue. Endeavour is scheduled to lift off from Pad 39A on May 30 on a crew rotation mission to the International Space Station. The exact launch time has not been announced because of security issues, but NASA says the launch is currently scheduled for between 4 and 8 pm (2000 and 0000 GMT) on the 30th. The shuttle will ferry the Expedition Five crew of Valeri Korzun, Sergei Treschev, and Peggy Whitson to the station, and return the Expedition Four crew currently on the station, Yuri Onufrienko, Dan Bursch, and Carl Walz, back to Earth. Two spacewalks are scheduled for the STS-111 mission to add a mobile base system to the station's new railcar that will allow the Canadarm2 robot arm to be attached to the railcar.
