The STS-134 crew aboard space shuttle Endeavour talks to reporters during a live in-flight media event on Monday.

Space shuttle Endeavour’s crew is wrapping up final preparations for its planned landing at 2:35 a.m. EDT Wednesday at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The crew is preparing to stow the Ku-Band antenna, used for high-data rate communications and television from space, and will go to sleep at 9:56 a.m.

The crew members for space shuttle Endeavour's STS-134 mission are Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Gregory H. Johnson and Mission Specialists Michael Fincke, Greg Chamitoff, Andrew Feustel and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori.

During the 16-day mission, Endeavour and its crew will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) and spare parts including two S-band communications antennas, a high-pressure gas tank and additional spare parts for Dextre.
