Getting closer! The SORCE launch remains set for this Saturday, January 25, from Kennedy Space Center (KSC), with the launch scheduled for 3:10 p.m. Eastern Time, 1:10 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. Don’t forget you can call 303-735-3132 for information on any launch time changes.
This morning (1/22/03) was the long awaited day to transport the integrated Pegasus and spacecraft to the hot pad (see photos). Since it required closing the road, personnel will made the move very early in the morning to avoid interrupting the morning traffic. Final testing and maintenance on the spacecraft will be done from a small facility located next to the hot pad.«Return to the Meetings/News page
