Excellent, back end of STS-132 FD4, so that helps :)

H-IIA Flight 17 was specially early rollout (L-24 hours). Nominal L-12 hours.
The reason is due to workload balance.

Launch preview, made up of content from various overview sites that were in English :)

And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

very boring live feed this one. No other views, no cheering up, no self-advertising etc... and no sound loops either... well, I think we wouldn't understand japanese so..

Lets hope this gets better as things proceed towards liftoff :)
