NASASpaceFlight: NASA managers carry out further STS-335 to STS-135 alignment evaluations:
Quote:
NASA managers are continuing to work the alignment process between the STS-335 LON (Launch On Need) rescue role of Atlantis – in support of STS-134 – and the yet-to-be-funded STS-135 mission. The process – which ranges from requirements on the International Space Station (ISS), to the External Tanks – allows for a smooth transition to baselining STS-135, when funded.

Anyone think it is possible we'll get a patch to boot?

STS-335 would use this patch (obviously with STS-335 in place of STS-400, and Endeavour + STS-125 removed).


I should imagine that STS-135 patch designs are currently "in work". If 135 isn't approved, I should imagine the designs will be released on collectSPACE, as unapproved/unofficial designs are legally the property of the artist, not NASA.

Now that the president signed the bill, is STS-135 official?

Also out of curiosity, what's STS-135's launch time?

There's also some interesting STS-135 content in this video.

Noticed in the video how pessimistic they are about STS-135. The bill got passed, it pretty likely they'll get the funding for STS-135 once the appropriation bill is passed.

Quote:
Members of the Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) have echoed Shuttle workforce concerns from Space Shuttle Program (SSP) manager John Shannon about prolonging the current uncertainty about the status of the proposed STS-135 mission. Lawmakers authorized NASA to fly Atlantis’ mission, though it continues to lack the appropriation of funding.
