CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Reporters are invited to cover space shuttle 
Endeavour's move from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39B 
on Friday, April 17, at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The 
4.2-mile journey is scheduled to begin at 12:01 a.m. EDT and will 
take approximately seven hours.

Journalists can participate in a photo opportunity for the shuttle's 
rollout at 6:30 a.m. and an interview availability with Endeavour 
Flow Director Dana Hutcherson at 8:30 a.m. Live coverage of the move 
will be shown on NASA Television beginning at 6:30 a.m. Video 
highlights will air on the NASA TV Video File.

Endeavour will be at Launch Pad 39B in the unlikely event a rescue 
mission is needed during Atlantis' May flight to upgrade the Hubble 
Space Telescope. After Atlantis is cleared to land, Endeavour will 
move to Launch Pad 39A in late May for its upcoming STS-127 mission 
to the International Space Station.

Reporters must arrive at Kennedy's news center by 6 a.m. Friday for 
transportation to the viewing area. Foreign media accreditation for 
this event is closed. U.S. reporters without permanent Kennedy Space 
Center credentials must apply online for accreditation by 4 p.m.

Space Center Badging Office on State Road 405. Dates and times of
