. . . and because I can't leave you all hanging over the entire weekend (I would feel too bad!), I give you:
SEP-010, Chapter 12.
Flight Dynamics Officer, Christopher Wescott blinked as Constitution did something witchy.
One second, the gargantuan orbiter was in a stable free-float, about to undergo another passive thermal control roll to 'heads-down' . . . and the next, a slew of RCS commands recorded on his repeater console as she skew-turned violently in...
June 9th 2012, 21:47 zulu time, the Energia launcher lifted off with the Cassiopee core module for the new space station TSS. Lift off was from Sumatra Island, Indonesia at SRC Polygon Base. The base's location is approximately 1.2 degrees N of the equator.
The plan for the station is to be leased to various nations/companies. Initial plans are for the station to support a crew of 3. In the future, further expansion will be possible.
