STS-118: rollout to launch pad (NASA/KSC) NASA moved the space shuttle Endeavour to the launch pad early Wednesday in preparation for next month's ISS mission. Endeavour, attached to its external tank and solid rocket boosters, left the Vehicle Assembly Building at 8:10 pm EDT Tuesday night (0010 GMT Wednesday), arriving at pad 39A seven hours later. Endeavour is scheduled to lift off August 7 on the STS-118 shuttle mission to resupply the International Space Station and install a new truss segment. The launch will be the first mission for Endeavour since late 2002; the orbiter was in the midst of an extended overhaul when the shuttle program returned to flight after the Columbia accident.
