The six-member crew of the next space shuttle mission participated in a full launch dress rehearsal, known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test on Oct. 15 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The test provided an opportunity for the crew and ground teams to participate in various simulated countdown activities, including equipment familiarization, emergency training and a simulated launch countdown.

Discovery is targeted to launch Nov. 1 on its final scheduled flight. During its 11-day mission, astronauts will deliver and install the Permanent Multipurpose Module, critical spare components for the station, and the Express Logistics Carrier 4, an external platform that holds large equipment. Discovery also will deliver Robonaut 2, or R2, to become a permanent resident of the station as the first human-like robot in space.
