STS-125 Crew in Final Training
The STS-125 astronauts are set to arrive in Florida on Friday. Today in the motion base simulator at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, they will participate in some final training in preparation for their mission to service NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The crew began the standard prelaunch quarantine last night. Follow Mission Specialist Mike Massimino's personal account of training for the mission at http://twitter.com/Astro_Mike.
