That's why they have the experts working in there  ;)
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

And if the 9th is a +2 day conflict, the 10th would be a +1 day and DDO conflict. Unless I'm really missing something here, that would make the 11th a nominal 14day mission (which is the baseline) conflict with DDO, right? Please correct me if my math is wrong.

I'm about to go listen to the full presser rebroadcast, but the notes below suggest they're keeping all options open... unless I have the context wrong.


Harwood for the 9th is not available, how soon is the LCA coming out, going in, why it's so complicated to retest:

Moses: 9th wouldn't be available if we went +2 on the mission, undock on the same as Soyuz.  Doesn't mean we couldn't launch on the 9th and go +1 for the mission, didn't think about it earlier as we didn't think we were heading over to that side of the range.

...

Question: Any dates between the 8th and 15th you've ruled out? 
 
Moses:  Not really, they all look good.

I realize this isn't a democracy, but I officially place my vote for launch NET May 11th.  That would (should) give us a nice photo op of OV-105 on orbit, DDO and Atlantis moving to the right notwithstanding.
As noted on April 29th, Space Pete, please make some calls! :)

Heh, I don't think they'd listen to me. ;)

I too hope it moves to NET May 11th, so that we can get the Soyuz flyabout with ATV present. It would really help out the STS-135 timeline to get it done on 134. But, we'll just have to wait and see.

And with that we'll put this scrub for Endeavour behind us, send her virtual get-well cards and move to the troubleshooting thread here:
