With the upcoming return to flight of the Space Shuttle, you would think I would have posted more about it. In fact, launch is scheduled for Saturday, so it is looming near. It looks like weather could be a factor, though, because we are back into our pattern of convective thunderstorms every afternoon, and the launch time is set at 3:49.
Anyway, I don’t know why I haven’t posted about it- it isn’t because I haven’t been thinking about it, but instead maybe because it is so much a part of my consciousness that I don’t even think about mentioning it. Andy has to work Saturday to support the launch since he works at the pad, and I may go out there if it looks like it is really going to go. Please everyone pray for a successful launch so we can get back to the business of human spaceflight with some regularity.
