Got to participate in S0017 preps today– configuring the ship for Monday’s launch rehersal with the astronauts. Was sitting in the mission specialists 2 seat behind and between the commander and the pilot seats. Everything was up and running– all the CRTs, MFDs, and displays. It was pretty cool. Got to configure switches and do comm checks in support of tomorrow’s practice run. Wish I could have brought a camera in, but it is too busy to make arrangements for that at this point. After this, we are SCAPEing the rest of the week loading hazardous propellants into the vehicle. I will be supporting S0007- the final launch preps on this flow, so this is a good experience for me. Things are going well so far– no major issues.
