The crack in the crawler-transporter cleat that delayed rollout of Space Shuttle Endeavour can be seen as a white dotted line on the top-center and running down the right side. The cleat rests on the ground near Launch Pad 39B. The cracked cleat forced the reverse of the rollout back outside the pad gate so the cleat could be replaced on flat ground before moving up the incline to the top of the pad. Endeavour is scheduled to be launched Nov. 30 at 10:01 p.m. EST on mission STS-97, the sixth construction flight to the International Space Station. Its payload includes the P6 Integrated Truss Structure and a photovoltaic (PV) module, with giant solar arrays that will provide power to the Station. The mission includes two spacewalks to complete the solar array connections. (Photo Release Date: 10/31/2000 )
