Updating of the plan...

From "NASA Space Station On-Orbit Status 17 May 2005":
http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewsr.html?pid=16659

Soyuz TMA-7 (11S) launch -- 10/22

Recently I talked with expert from Mission Control Centre (MCC-M, Moscow)... He has told me that Progress M-54 (18P) launch will be postponed from 24 August to September and Soyuz TMA-7 (11S) launch - from 27 September to 21 (or 22) October...

Thanks for posting that...was wondering, doesn't that 21-27 September launch conflict with Atlantis' launch window? Can you have a Soyuz and a Shuttle on the ISS at the same time?

Delay of Soyuz TMA-7 launch from 27 September to 22 October still isn't confirmed officially but I heard that there is informal diagram containing new Soyuz TMA-7 launch date!

If Atlantis will be launched on 19 September Soyuz TMA-7 launch should be postponed on 28 September, if 20 September – on 29 September, if 21 September – on 30 September, if 22 September – on 1 October, if 23 September – on 2 October and if 24 September – on 3 October… I heard American experts have already asked Russian experts to delay Soyuz TMA-7 launch at once on 3 October!

Always, because Soyuz is on ISS as rescue spacecraft since 2 November, 2000… But if you mean the second Soyuz – then never... There might be a such situation in April, 2001 (Endeavour [STS-100] and Soyuz TM-32) but all was finished safely – Endeavour departed and then Soyuz TM-32 arrived!

Conformity between the shuttles and flights on 21 April 2005…

Discovery – 9 flights – STS-114, -116, -118, -122, -125, -127, -129, -131, -134
Atlantis – 10 flights – STS-121, -115, -117, -120, -124, -132, -135, -137, -139, -141
Endeavour – 9 flights – STS-119, -123, -126, -128, -130, -133, -136, -138, -140

But from Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin who recently was in USA I heard that one more flight to the Hubble Space Telescope is now planned on 2007 (with John Grunsfeld as the crewmember)!

Interesting. I thought we only worked five fights in advance?

STS-114 LAUNCH WINDOWS
By William Harwood
CBS News Space Consultant
http://cbsnews.cbs.com/network/news/space/current.html

Editor's Note...
Updated 05/31/05

To reach the international space station, the shuttle must take off within about five minutes of the moment Earth's rotation carries the launch pad into the plane of the station's orbit. To maximize performance, NASA targets launch for right around the moment the shuttle can launch directly into that plane. For shuttle mission STS-114, NASA has decided not to launch in windows that result in a flight-day 4 rendezvous and docking. If some event drove NASA to a flight-day 4 launch anyway, there would be no in-plane time. In all such "dual-plane" cases, the launch windows overlap and an FD-4 launch would occur after the FD-3 in-plane time.

Editor's Note: The windows listed below assume a space station reboost maneuver June 29 to bring in additional flight-day 3 rendezvous opportunities. In cases where the launch window is less than 10 minutes long, there is no "in-plane" launch time and the shuttle would take off at the opening of the window. For July 25, rendezvous rocket firings could, in theory, bring in a flight-day 3 rendezvous opportunity, but no such opportunity currently exists "off the pad."

THE TIMES LISTED BELOW ARE PRELIMINARY AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE (all times in EDT):

Crews of the nearest Shuttle flights are well-known but the team of Soyuz TMA-7 spacecraft (launch – autumn 2005) completely officially isn’t announced for the present! The crew’s confirmation is expected this month...

First two armchairs in Soyuz TMA-7 should occupy by crewmembers of ISS Expedition 12 (William McArthur and Valery Tokarev). Two persons are «struggled» for the third armchair – future third space tourist Gregory Olsen and possible 100th Russian cosmonaut Sergey Zhukov!

By the way, Soyuz TMA-7 launch will be a 100th Russian manned space launch!!! :)

By the way, if manned spaceflight statistics is interesting to someone, I announce with lateness that on 8 June 2005 at 08:04 UTC ISS Expedition 11 Commander Sergey Krikalyov has surpassed total duration of Valery Polyakov’s spaceflights (678 days 16 hours 33 minutes 19 seconds)!

Krikalyov is on the second place in the world now…

Only Sergey Avdeyev is above now (747 days 14 hours 14 minutes 11 seconds)… Krikalyov will exceed Avdeyev’s record on 16 August 2005 at 05:45 UTC and become «Number One In The World»!!! ;)

Hm… From "NASA Space Station On-Orbit Status 23 June 2005"
http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewsr.html?pid=17099

Progress M-54/19P launch -- 9/20
Soyuz TMA-7/11S launch -- 9/27

Superb!… :o Seven days between launches!… :o

Not clear to me when the final plan containing Progress M-54 and Soyuz TMA-7 launch dates will be published!…

http://www.federalspace.ru/PlanQuart.asp (in Russian, of course)

Progress M-54 launch – September 9 (note: date will be defined more precisely!!!…)
