any idea what time the reboost on 24th will occur?
What will the objectives of the Russian EVA-26 and 27 be?
According to http://www.spaceflightnow.com/shuttle/sts131/100405launch/Kirk Shireman said that this year the space station program expects "six station-based spacewalks above and beyond the EVAs planned by visiting shuttle crews."Is that a mistake, because there are only 5 station-based EVAs listed in this schedule.
How come it takes almost 3 weeks before ATV dock after launch?
December 15 - Progress M-07M undocking (from Zvezda)December 17 - ATV-2 "Johannes Kepler" docking (to Zvezda)
Then why launch it almost 3 weeks in advance? Is there an advantage in having it in orbit for a longer period?

I think may be the launch date has been rescheduled? At least unofficially.
