Thursday morning, the STS-131 astronauts participated in a media question-and-answer session at Launch Pad 39A before beginning their practice of emergency exit procedures. The crew is at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida this week for a full-dress launch rehearsal, known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test.

Also Thursday, technicians at the launch pad were set to close space shuttle Discovery's crew hatch and perform tests in preparation for a targeted liftoff on April 5.
