Submitted by Arthur N1ORC

Crew Prepares for Docking
The five astronauts and two cosmonauts aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour will
spend their first full day in orbit preparing for their arrival at the
International Space Station. Commander Ken Cockrell and Pilot Paul Lockhart
will fire the shuttle's engines to increase Endeavour's altitude and
continue to close in on the station. Also, Cockrell and Mission Specialist
Philippe Perrin will activate Space Shuttle Endeavour's robot arm.

Endeavour is slated to dock with station at 11:18 a.m. CDT (1618 GMT)
Friday. It will be delivering the Expedition Five crew, the Leonardo
Multi-Purpose Logistics Module and the Mobile Remote Servicer Base System,
which is also known as the MBS. Also, the STS-111 crew will perform three
spacewalks at the orbital outpost.
