Public Invited to View Landing of Space Shuttle Endeavour
Cleveland -- The public is invited to the Visitor Center at NASA's Glenn Research Center on Tuesday, August 21, to view the landing of STS-118 Space Shuttle Endeavour. NASA Television's live coverage of the landing will be shown in the Auditorium on a large video screen.
Landing is scheduled for 12:32 p.m. at Kennedy Space Center, Fla. A second opportunity is available at the Florida spaceport at 2:06 p.m.
The STS-118 crew members spent almost nine days at the International outpost. They continued the on-orbit construction of the station and transferred tons of cargo between the two spacecraft. The STS-118 crew conducted four spacewalks at the station. The two major objectives were the installation of the S5 and the replacement of a failed attitude control gyroscope.
Admission to the Visitor Center is free and is wheelchair accessible. Access to the Glenn Visitor Center is limited to U.S. citizens. All adult visitors must present government-issued photo identification upon entering the center's main gate. All vehicles are subject to inspection.
