Dec. 4, 2006- Launching this week!

Closed the payload bay doors a few days ago– we are ready to rock and roll Thursday (Pearl Harbour Day)! Another truss segment for the Space Station will be on the way

9:47 p.m. is the scheduled launch time. It will be the first night launch in a long time. They are cooler to watch because the whole sky lights up and the exhaust plume is more defined. Keep an eye out– the station will be visible by the naked eye soon!
