Atlantis/STS-122?

by | Jan 11, 2008 | International Space Station | 0 comments

While there is still no official press release from NASA about the no earlier than launch date for the agency’s Space Shuttle Atlantis NASASpaceflight.com has a few more details about the external tank (ET) testing and details about the status of orbiter Endeavour as it waits for the launch pad to become free for its STS-123 mission. I bet NASA wishes it hadn’t transferred pad 39B to its Constellation programme now

Here you can find the 8 January Internatonal Space Station status report that includes a whole series of dates for flights to ISS later this year but now none of it is correct

While NASA frets about when Atlantis will go and its ET troubles the Russians are apparently planning to use the Energia Progress vehicle M-61 that undocked at the station on 22 December to conduct plasma environment experiments before it reenters the atmosphere and burns up on 22 January

And talking of Russians, my colleagues found this video about the alleged ISS cosmonaut vodka drinking live on Ukrainian television, which you may have seen elsewhere on the internet
