With the six STS-134 mission astronauts aboard space shuttle Endeavour the Close Out Crew has closed the hatch for flight and is in the process of verifying the integrity of the hatch seal before breaking down the White Room and departing the launch pad.

The Final Inspection Team reports finding nothing unusual during its survey of the external tank, Endeavour or the launch pad.

Weather conditions are “go” and there are no major technical issues in work. Launch remains on schedule for 8:56 a.m. EDT.
