Currently listening to Lori Garver, Deputy Administrator, talk about her job and the her two loves, Space and Politics. Gave us the information that David Letterman is here on property for the launch – he’s not Conan, but thankfully he’s not Leno as well!
Before Garver came in to speak for a few minutes, we took our group photo out by the countdown clock!
Here’s the photo next to the launch pad 39-A last night: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasahqphoto/4605256176/sizes/l/
I was there… see!
Today doesn’t have quite the same structure on speakers today.. we just got the chance to wave the astronauts off in the Astrovan. We are some of the last people that they will see! How crazy is that. My mind has been blown.
Chief Meteorologist Lt. Col. Patrick Barrett is telling us about why the shuttle may NOT go off: low clouds, lightening, etc. Atlantis needs to be able to return to the pad if need be and the weather has to be clear.
I can’t wait to get some of my pictures up today and tomorrow. There is over 14 gigs of pictures and videos to go through, so bear with me. I want to get them up soon so I can share them.
Here is a photo for the RSS pulling away from Atlantis yesterday to hold you and me over.
