In preparation for space shuttle Endeavour's final launch, the STS-134 crew of six veteran astronauts flew T-38 training jets to NASA's Kennedy Space Center on the afternoon of March 29.
They came to the Florida launch site to conduct the standard week-long prelaunch training and countdown dress rehearsal -- officially known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test.
Mark Kelly/STS-134 Commander:
"TCDT, or Terminal Countdown Test, is when the processing and the training kind of comes together after being parallel things for a very long period of time."

Narrator: NASA's space shuttles are some of the most high-tech and complex vehicles ever built, but they couldn't fly without the help of a much older technology: the railroad.
This is no ordinary train -- it's the NASA Railroad at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
It carries extremely dangerous freight... one of national importance.
Chris Bryant, URS Locomotive Engineer/Mechanic: "It's not something to just kind of sneeze about, you know. When we're hauling in, we're hauling four to five million pounds of explosives."
