As per usual for the site, we move from baseline PRCB-based articles into FRR-based articles - from presentations published in L2 - in the run up to launch.

This thread will list them as we publish.

First one is an excellent master mission overview from the MOD FRR presentations:

Thank you for the kind words, Peter and Chris.

I love this stuff. It might be difficult to wade to through, but it's utterly fascinating to really read and digest all the little things that have to be taken into consideration for the big picture issues.

Actually, ChrisG, while some of the material is rather dense, we are glad we can count on things not being dumbed down for us on this site.  And for those of us who are planning trips to see the launch (I'm coming all the way from California courtesy of my congressional tickets) a lot of these issues are rather critical as we make our arrangements. 

We also know that we can get the early scoop here, if it does look like we need to re-book our plane tickets and other arrangements in the event of any delays.

Chris,
Thank you very much for the update!
It is important to know what is going on for those who are flying to see the launch.


Offline Chris Bergin

Pleasure and it's all looking very good, especially considering the one day of contingency in the flow.
