Right now at T-06:00:00 and holding. In about 40 minutes the MMT will meet to review any outstanding problems or issues and the latest weather forecasts.

So far there's no constraints against proceeding with ET tanking operations or launch. Both RTLS, TAL and AOA weather forecasts are holding steady.

You need to install a special plug-in from the mozilla homepage for directly integrating the media Player into Firefox.

MPS and transfer line chilldowns are confirmed to be in work. Then both propellants will go into slowfill mode up to 5% and then switch to fastfill mode until levels reach 98% when topping mode will be started.

Yes, I agree. If anyone has any browser/ NASA TV issues then please post something in the help thread. I will endeavour to help you in any way I can.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Palmettos appear to frame space shuttle Endeavour as it rolls toward Launch Pad 39A on NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The shuttle earlier moved off Launch Pad 39B starting at 8:28 am. EDT and headed for pad 39A. Endeavour is targeted to launch Nov. 14 on the STS-126 mission. On this 27th mission to the International Space Station, Endeavour will carry the Lightweight Multi-Purpose Experiment Support Structure Carrier and the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module Leonardo that will hold supplies and equipment, including additional crew quarters, additional exercise equipment, spare hardware and equipment for the regenerative life support system.

Launch coverage has now started.

STS-126 NASA TV schedule:
http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasat..._schedule.html

Fuelling is now nearly completed.
5h 40m to go now...


(With regard to pictures: If any moderators are reading this, it would be nice to have an actual STS-126 album in the gallery, so all good pics of the mission could be put in there)???
