CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – Space Shuttle Discovery's STS-128 mission crewmembers arrive in T-38 training jets at NASA's Kennedy Space Center Shuttle Landing Facility. ESA astronaut and STS-128 Mission Specialist Christer Fuglesang is seen here. The astronauts are at KSC for terminal countdown demonstration test activities that include equipment familiarisation and emergency egress training, and will culminate in a simulated launch countdown aboard Discovery. The mission will deliver a new crewmember and new equipment to the International Space Station. The equipment includes science and storage racks, a freezer to store research samples, a new sleeping compartment and the COLBERT treadmill. Launch of Discovery is targeted for late August.
