Seat Assignments for shuttle
NASA has posted the 'seat assignments' of the shuttle astronauts. Check it out here.
In other news, the weather is not looking good. Apparently thunder and even lightning are around the launch pad now. While the ground crew takes cover, the astronauts have arrived at the tower and are due to ride up the gantry to load in, courtesy of the 'Closeout Crew'. (You know, the nice folks with the white suits you've seen in every space film?) No word yet whether load-in has been delayed by the thunderstorms.
