Space Shuttle Ferry Flight Arrival On NASA TV's Public Channel
WASHINGTON - Today's arrival of space shuttle Endeavour at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida will be seen only on NASA Television's Public Channel (101). System maintenance is being performed on the media (103) and education (102) channels.

Mounted atop a modified Boeing 747 shuttle carrier aircraft, Endeavour is scheduled to land at Kennedy at 2:30 p.m. EST after a three-day cross-country ferry flight from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

Space shuttle Endeavour and its crew landed at Edwards Nov. 30, completing a 16-day journey of more than 6.6 million miles. During the mission, designated STS-126, the crew conducted important repair work and prepared the International Space Station to house six crew members on long-duration missions beginning next year.
