The U.S. space agency says it will provide live TV coverage next month as it previews space shuttle Endeavour's next trip to the International Space Station.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said NASA-TV and its Web site will telecast live coverage of the Nov. 3 briefings from the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Endeavour's 15-day flight, designated STS-126, is targeted for launch Nov. 14. NASA said the flight will deliver supplies and equipment to prepare the station for six-person crews starting next spring. The mission includes four spacewalks to service the solar arrays that track the sun, providing the ISS with power.

Chris Ferguson will command Endeavour's STS-126 crew, which includes pilot Eric Boe and astronauts Donald Pettit, Steve Bowen, Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, Shane Kimbrough, and Sandra Magnus.
