Also there's a Debris verification review at JSC next week, which is also something that needs to be given a green light for launch.

A lot of things to get passed yet then. I wouldn't bet against a July launch, personally.

Same here. If they are ever not going to keep a flow moving over even the slightest concern, it's this one.

There seems to be a calender thing on here that means I can enter key test dates etc....which will come up on the bottom of forum pages when they are about to be reached. I'll try and enter as much as I can.

Discovery is being mated and closed out over the weekend. Set to roll-out on Monday.

Really enjoyed the info in here. Maybe time for a thread on the roll-out?

Good thinking. I'm doing a story asap - and will launch the new thread from that.

Still not sunk into my mindset that we're finally going to see a Shuttle head back up into space in just a matter of a month and a half. This is real exciting.

The BBC has colated an excellent set of images regarding the roll-over and mating of Discovery.
