By The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) ' Astronauts are fixing and hauling equipment aboard the linked Atlantis and International Space Station, as the last shuttle flight draws closer to an end.

Meanwhile, celebrity wake-up calls continue. The latest Earth-to-space greeter: singer Beyonce.
