I've returned from Houston

My training in Houston was awesome. I was running a bunch of code in Unix to run SINDA, which modeled tile cavities. The tool is useful because it determines the temperatures of the tile adhesive to the structure, and the actual structure temperature with the input of cavity dimensions. I enjoyed my time in Houston and learned a lot.

The latest KSC update on the external tank is that the delivery of the external tank modified without the ramps is estimated for March 30, which would bring us to a launch date in July 2006.

I start my first graduate course Jan. 7th 2006. I'm excited, I am one of those who absolutley loves school and learning.

Hope everyone enjoys the holidays!!
