Couldn't help but notice that it took over 2 days for the Space Shuttle to dock with the ISS after launch from Kennedy at 6:36 PM EDT, Wednesday
Also couldn’t help but notice it’s going to take about 52 hours and 36 minutes after undocking with the ISS until it lands. The official NASA
undocking time was 7:56 AM EDT today Sunday and official first landing time is 12:32 PM EDT on Tuesday.
Now I am sure NASA has a very good excuse for this delay. I am sure that there is a lot of preparation and checklists to do but 52 hours worth?
And what about the checklists and preparation for docking? Why would it take over 2 days to get docked in the first place? They just took off!
They're not ready?
Like I say, I am sure that NASA has a very good excuse for this delay but I am too lazy to call the public information officer so I’ll cut to my
conspiracy if you don’t mind.
I believe that the Shuttle goes directly to the Secret Space Station (that John Lenard had pictures of) directly after launch from Kennedy. At the
Secret Space Station, some cargo is off loaded and it is possible that other cargo is on loaded to go to the ISS.
When the shuttle gets to the ISS the remaining cargo is off loaded and the busy work is performed at the ISS.
Then the shuttle leaves the ISS and heads back to the Secret Space Station before landing at Kennedy either to off load cargo picked up at the ISS
and/or on load cargo for earth.
A lot of this cargo will make more sense in future posts when Zorgon and I get back from the Bay Area UFO Expo. You will not believe what we found.
Here is the Endeavor’s schedule according to NASA:
Day 1 launch
Day 2 configure shuttle for docking to ISS
Day 3 docking with ISS
Day 13 undocks from ISS
Day 14 crews stows equipment and prepares for landing
Day 15 Shuttle lands
All I gotta say is that’s a lot of configuring for docking and stowing equipment for landing.
