Background information on the transmission:
The shuttle Endeavour’s countdown is ticking toward a launch tonight at 22:36 GMT, with no significant technical problems and with forecasters now predicting an 80 percent chance of good weather.
The high-profile mission to the International Space Station features several spacewalks. Crew member Barbara Morgan, a 55-year-old elementary school teacher-turned-astronaut has waited 21 years for a chance to become the first teacher in Space.
Astronauts will install a 2-ton solar array spacer segment on the ISS, replace a gyroscope, install a 3.5-ton external equipment storage platform and bring fresh water and more than 2 tons of hardware and supplies to the ISS.
Flight Day One highlights provide a summary of all events on launch day, from the crew breakfast after wake-up until the end of the crew day in orbit, six hours after lift-off.
Please note that the line-up time for this SCPC feed is 5 minutes.
