Star and flag...thank you for the heads up.
Knowing ahead of time will make it less unnerving when it happens. I wish them a safe and happy landing.

Just a friendly reminder that aswell as all the predicted events that are supposed to happen today, we should also keep an eye on the skies for '2005 YU55'.

It is calculated to travel by Earth at a distance of 0.0152 Au.
It measures between 110m and 250m.

There is alot of speculation about this one as some think this could impact when it comes around next time on Sept 8th 2011.

Thank you, I hadn't heard of that. It certainly is something to keep an eye on this next year. Otherwise the scientists may "forget" to warn us of impact before it's too late to do anything but clean up in the aftermath.

I'm no expert by any degree, but on my quick look at Spaceweater, it has the details.
2005 YU55
April 19
5.9 LD
185 m

So, I'm not sure how you make that out to be halfway between the Earth and the moon? This details it as missing by 5.9 times the distance of the moon...

You folks are lucky in the USA, I would have loved to hear and see the sights of NASA's programs in full flight, launches, re-entrys.... *sigh*

I don't think it will land like Vance said, it's pouring here. I can see the KSC from my balcony but right now it's covered by rain clouds. I will be up early just incase so I can film it. I have never filmed a return flight before so I hope it does come home, but safely

And also watch out for minor earthquake that caused by sonic boom ? ?

edit: uh oh, the shuttle is going over the midwest area.

Shuttle landing flight path

I just wanted to give a heads up, so people wouldn't be alarmed by either the site or the booms on the way to work in the morning. I could just imagine all the posts about alien invasions

I have to admit, I was at Lake Tahoe around this time last year, when a shuttle flew overhead and it really is quite an unsettling experience if you've never seen it before and don't know what's going on.

Luckily, my friend, being a rocket scientist (an honest to goodness rocket scientist, honestly
) told me what it was.

So thanks for the heads up. S&F

Eh guy's ever heard of AURORA, sounds like USAF doing some more testing on the newest tech other than UFO's. when ever i hear about AURORA the next thing i hear is about sonic booms.

If you want to know more about AURORA i wrote about it on another site.

Now this is pretty cool. They're gonna pass by pretty close to where I'm at. Anxious. Too bad we've got this low cloud cover. It'd be cool to see them... but I think it will amplify the boom at the same time.

It seems there wont be a landing today at all....

Space Shuttle won't land Monday, NASA says

[Updated at 9:04 a.m.] The space shuttle Discovery will not land Monday, NASA said.

[Posted at 7:12 a.m.] NASA has waved off the first landing opportunity of space shuttle Discovery because of weather.

The next landing opportunity at Kennedy Space Center in Florida is at 10:23 a.m. ET.

Well okay that is strike one. They are going to try again tomorrow for the fly over of the same large swathe of N. America. This time an hour earlier.

Updated landing details

I was a disappointed when i heard they were completely scratching it for today. I was ready for the 7:00 and 10:00 one. Hopefully they can pull it off tomorrow as im really looking forward to it.

I'd love to see any video's there is of this when it happens.

Nope...I was out back exploring the new central-south north American jungle that has sprouted up in my backyard. As I was scrounging around looking for any signs of indigenous peoples, or DB Coopers money, I was attentively awaiting a series of reports...

but alas...nada

no new race or species of people either...perhaps I need some Annunuki fertilizer

well #...

I guess I should read the thread before posting, huh?

So be it...maybe I'll arm myself and venture further into the wilderness...

I'm watching the NASA channel, on my SAT TV.

AS OF 1131 GMT, 20 April, they are 'go' for the KSC landing.

Edwards AFB is still alternate.
