Mar 10, 2008- Last night

I was on the flight deck performing a switchlist when a couple of ASPs (astronaut support personnel) came in to check the cockpit configuration and do comm checks with Houston and MILO. One of them was Kathy Hire, former KSC engineer and astronaut. We talked for a short time before things started to get busy. It was a nice surprise to meet her. Never know who you are going to run into sitting inside the vehicle!

Haven’t decided whether I will stick around for the launch yet. Probably will, but we’ll see how I feel once I’m at work.
