    STS123-S-006 (11 March 2008) --- After suiting up, the STS-123 crewmembers exit the Operations and Checkout Building to board the Astrovan, which will take them to launch pad 39A for the launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour on the STS-123 mission. On the right (front to back) are NASA astronauts Dominic Gorie, commander; Mike Foreman, Rick Linnehan and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Takao Doi, all mission specialists. On the left (front to back) are NASA astronauts Garrett Reisman, mission specialist; Gregory H. Johnson, pilot; and Robert L. Behnken, mission specialist. The crew will make a record-breaking 16-day mission to the International Space Station and deliver the first section of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Kibo laboratory and the Canadian Space Agency's two-armed robotic system, Dextre. Reisman will join Expedition 16 in progress to serve as a flight engineer aboard the station.
