In the UK here i have just visited the NASA website and Atlantis is in prep to launch later today. This to me is very important and I know i'm going
to try and keep my eyes peeled for anything out of the ordinary.
Perhaps as the mission progresses we could use this thread for any updates of what people might have seen, maybe hints & tips of the best way to look
for these anomalies and other general mission theories.
I for one am really looking forward to this because some of the most convincing footage i have seen has been taken from these missions, let's see if
we can spot them before they do!!
I believe some of the media stated earlier they were still going to launch even though there were still worries about the power cell that caused the

(finicky, unreliable readings, and difficult to reach/diagnose/repair_replace).
Most (but not the politically powerful) engineers want to "Go" anyway, but over-caution rules (i.e., "rues") the day...
To bad that nothing was shown on NASA T.V. , however , about 10 mins ago at 12:35 pm Central Time ( U.S.A.) , Commander Pavel Vinogradov reported to
NASA Control an Unknown Object.
He said in Russian and it was translated over the Air (paraphrasing) , " We have an unknown object. We don't know what it is ... If no one knows
what it is ... then no one cares. Do you have any questions ? "
