Removal and replacement of the cracked cleat (shoe) on the crawler-transporter (seen here with the Mobile Launcher Platform and Space Shuttle Endeavour on top) is nearly complete. The cracked cleat was noticed during rollout of Endeavour to Launch Pad 39B. 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 )
