For those of you who like entry track heads up!

Rev 200 is still being worked due to TS Bret, but 201 and 202 have been nailed down already....

PS Houston are in charge of producing these tracks. Thought that might be something you'd like to know ;)

Totally OT, but they just had the tribute film to STS-1: Columbia on, and thought I would share launch & landing photos

Reason 1084 some people want an Edwards landing, so she can wave at Houston as the SCA takes her home. You can look, but don't touch ;)

(I do think Houston should have got one of the bird regardless).

(messed up the name capture)

Meghan Murphy. EMU.

Adjusts spacesuits. Involved in the pre-breathe protocol.

Been there 4 years, certified in the back room.
Had a suit leak during STS-133 - a lot of troubleshooting realtime. Got them out the door safely.

Following the space program since she was little. "career days" allowed her to work for USA before working at NASA.

Sorry for my amateur question but Atlantis is going to land in Houston?

Better keep an eye on the deorbit burn TIG... :)

"Atlantis, Houston, uhh... we goofed on the deorbit TIG and had you fire 3 minutes early...  You're going to have to come home to Houston..."
