Launch Rally

How about an official Rally Logo. I will see if I can crank up the PhotoShop and come up with something.

We'll sell the tickets and stay with you folks. We can come up early with out any problems. Our son will fly down from NYC to watch the launch. Any recommendation for the best airport to fly into? Orlando?

I was thinking the same thing - but will get nailed if I do any more personal stuff from work. If you get one together - please send me a copy! I was thinking of having a banner or some signs made (for staking our area in the campground) and will include it!

Ohhhhh - I was also thinking of a way to incorporate the NASA Crew Airstream. I made a few calls to see if we could get a *drive by* but was quickly chastised. Seems that they will be using it on launch day. Imagine that! Laura

Rally Logo

Laura,

I was thinking about replacing the Shuttle in this photo with the NASA AstroVan. I will toy around with that idea and see what turns out.

Oops

Laura:

Just got around to reading the fine print: "Please indicate the dates you plan to attend and the number in your party!"

We will be attending all the days we can. We are coming from San Diego and hope to be in the area on the 1st or 2nd. There's an Atlas launch scheduled on the 3rd, we'd like to see as well. We intend to stay in the area until we can get into the KARS Park. There are two of us.

Tnx Lyle & Margie

Possible launch delay

I was having dinner with a few friends this weekend and heard a rumor about a problem with some lines at the pad. Looks like an ammonia line for the module that Endeavour is carrying to space station failed during pre-launch testing last week. The repair/work-around may take some creative engineering. Sounds like it could force a delay. There is some talk about rolling it back and switching with Discovery's (planned March) mission. I'll keep you all informed with what I hear - it's all conjecture for now...

Sounds like they could use some Airstream engineers.
Site give Jan 15 as a date to watch to see if they roll out the module.
We can hope until then, and the Universe site should be able to keep us up to date, on their progress.

Would you like a rally ad for this event on the left column? If you have a logo together, I can use that if not I can just whip something simple up...

Lemme know
