Countdown

Space Shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to lift-off at 02:28 Tuesday morning. This would be a complete wash for me if Parker didn’t wake us at all hours of the night. The weather service said there’s a 90% chance of good weather overnight, so it should be a good night launch. A large part of the mission is to carry “Dextre” to the International Space Station. As the picture below shows, it is a multi-armed robotic device to help with regular maintenance on the station. I hope to get a picture of the launch from my house if at all possible, check back tomorrow.
