APU heater failures.  Wife just texted from launch.  Launch control is still poling, but it looks bad right now.

Very sad it is to be the last flight––there's three APU's on her, but everything has to be a GO for flight.

Scrubbed to no sooner than Sunday.

Bush's fault.

Now I don't feel so bad about not driving down to the launch.

Dang it. I had plans to watch it today. Now all the news is going to be about is the wedding

No, the space shuttle is racist.

They are SOooo lucky it scrubbed before I shut down early, unhooked the work trailer, unloaded the bed, picked up the knuckleheads from daycare, and started the drive north.


Anybody got an observation point that tops Space View park? Direct launch pad view & close enough for a good rumble?

I'm more than familiar with the OV's...and have changed out more than a few APU's during SCAPE operations

Also familiar with monomethyl hydrazine (APU fuel) and nitrogen tetroxide...

the plus side is obama doesnt have a photo op
Link Posted: 4/29/2011 3:09:25 PM EDT
Good thing is that they screwed up Obama's photo op. He doesn't care about space exploration unless it makes the muslims happy.
Link Posted: 4/29/2011 3:14:39 PM EDT
They should have faked it like the moon landing.

Probably delayed until next week. Service might take 3-4 days, and there's an Atlas launch scheduled for Friday. I'm going to guess 09 MAY.
Link Posted: 5/1/2011 11:59:24 AM EDT
On a twitter update no sooner than Sunday May 8th.
Link Posted: 5/1/2011 12:38:30 PM EDT
