« Venus Express is Off! | Main | Launch time set for 3:48 pm on Saturday »

June 27, 2006


This second space shuttle flight after the loss of Columbia is a critical one for NASA and the future of the space shuttle program. Success means we can move forward with finishing the space station and repairing Hubble; trouble may mean the loss of the Discovery orbiter even with rescue of the crew, and the early end of the shuttle program. NSS officers and staff will be blogging here on the mission as it progresses; comments are welcome!
