Default NASA Moon Launch in 5 hours...

The space shuttle launch has been scrapped until July because of fuel tank leaks and the lunar launch has been moved up to today. My sister's mentors has worked on this project at Goddard. She will be watching the launch with the folks there. This mission is to begin laying down to ground work for manned missions to the moon, resource extraction and colonization.

Mission details: [link]

If you look at the high res photo here: [link] You can see the lunar rocket in the front and the Space Shuttle in the back.

If you want to know what it takes to get a shuttle ready for launch... I have a pdf slideshow here: [link]
