In the grand scheme of things - today's record breaking snowfall is MUCH more important.
Also more rare than a shuttle stop at Barksdale.

Well, I could agree snow news _before_ or _during_ the snowstorm is higher priority, but afterwards, it's not really news, it's just history.

(I live in NH, I'm jaded on this whole snow thing)

Anyways, now they're replaying the same news, so I think we're hosed.

Although I only have audio, I am starting to suspect it may not be live...

Yup - she said Endeavour arrives at 1.30.  It was 1.34 when she said it.

Anyhow - we missed the live coverage - SCA has been on the ground for 20 mins already.

Oh well, we've had a good run with the Dallas/Fort Worth channel and the JSC flyover coverage. And we will obviously get a good amount of coverage from her arrival at KSC tomorrow.

The weather does not look good Chris. 

Will it be a direct flight to KSC from Barksdale?

Actually the weather looks very good tomorrow... One of the L2 options was direct to KSC from BAD, with a 2:35 flight time.

Here's a video my mother took as Endeavour was leaving FWNAS. And that's me reminding her of the ship's name...

STS-126 Mission Updatehttp://www.nasa.gov/shuttle en-us The Shuttle Carrier Aircraft took off from Ft. Worth at 12:08 p.m. EST and is expected to arrive at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana around 2 p.m. and remain there until Friday.

An advancing cold front moving in on Kennedy, preceded by high winds and storms will not allow a smooth flight and landing for the dynamic duo today.

The crosswinds at Kennedy are forecasted to subside and the carrier aircraft with Endeavour perched on top is scheduled to arrive at Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility no earlier than 2 p.m. Friday.]]> Thu, 11 Dec 2008 17:32:20 GMT

Heh...sounds pathetic to me.  Snow isn't news, it's what they put on the news when there's nothing else to talk about. ;)

That's life in Buffalo NY.  We like to laugh at the towns and cities that get shut down by an inch or two.

:D

I'm curious and haven't been able to search up an answer:

Does anyone know how they move the tailcone from one place to another (ex: KSC to Edwards)?

It is not one piece, it disassembles
