Endeavour Gets Its Engines

May 27, 2009
In NASA Kennedy's Orbiter Processing Facility bay 2, technicians on the Hyster forklift maneuver main engine 1 into position for installation on space shuttle Endeavour.

Endeavour is the backup shuttle, if needed for rescue, for the STS-125 Hubble servicing mission and will be stationed on Launch Pad 39B. For that purpose, it is designated STS-400.

Once Atlantis returns, Endeavour will be moved to Launch Pad 39A for the targeted Nov. 10, STS-126 launch to deliver a multi-purpose logistics module to the International Space Station.
