Launch Preparations Under Way; Workers to Check Coolant System STS-111
launch preparations continue at Kennedy Space Center,  Fla. Space Shuttle
Endeavour is slated to lift off May 30 to begin its journey to the
International Space Station. STS-111  will deliver the Expedition Five
crew and Mobile Remote Servicer Base System to the station.
Thursday night, workers did enter Endeavour's aft engine compartment to
inspect Water Spray Boiler No. 3 and look for leaks. The inspection is
being conducted because temperatures in the Auxiliary Power Unit's
coolant system failed to reach proper levels in the required times during
routine testing. 
 Currently, no impact to the May 30 launch date is expected.
Thursday afternoon, launch countdown preparations were under way and
late-stow items were being placed into the Leonardo 
Multi-Purpose Logistics Module.
