Liftoff of Space Shuttle Atlantis occurred yesterday at 2:28 p.m. It was a perfect launch and the weather definitely played in our favor. I leave for Houston today to assist in the review of the imagery that will be downlinked from the ISS of Atlantis. Tomorrow morning we will begin to get the imagery and start inspecting for any critical damages.
I have had a pretty crazy couple of weeks! I've been visiting various schools for a talk on the thermal protection system and I took a major exam yesterday on the combustion course I am taking. After taking that exam, I'm am just a lot more relieved and have a tiny bit more time for myself. :)
Well....off to do my last minute packing so I can catch my flight this morning!!! More updates to come during my week at Johnson Space Center.
