* Notes:

NASA managers have targeted space shuttle Discovery's
launch for no earlier than Dec. 17. Shuttle managers determined more
tests and analysis are needed before proceeding with the STS-133
mission.

As a result, the launch status meeting planned for Monday, Nov. 29,
has been postponed and will be rescheduled.

The Program Requirements Control Board (PRCB) reviewed on Wednesday
repairs and engineering evaluations associated with cracks on two
21-foot-long, U-shaped aluminum brackets, called stringers, on the
shuttle's external tank. Managers decided the analysis and tests
required to launch Discovery safely are not complete. The work will
continue through next week.

All missions are tentative and subject to change.

Changed Dates/Times since last page update are in Bold.

¹  Times/Dates are given in 24-hour ("military") time for the USA Eastern Standard/Daylight Time (EST/EDT) 
unless followed by "z" for Zulu time (Universal Coordinated Time, or UTC).
Midnight is 0000 and noon is 1200 hours.  Launch times are rounded down to the closest minute.
EST is 5 hours behind UTC (UTC-5);  EDT is 4 hours behind UTC (UTC-4)

*  Indicates that launch date/time are under review and may change.

Dates with "+1" or "+2" indicate the mission may be extended by 1 or 2 days.
ISS indicates an International Space Station assembly flight.

 

* Changes and Dates Under Review
NASA managers have targeted space shuttle Discovery's launch for no earlier than Feb. 3 at 1:34 a.m. EST. Shuttle managers determined more tests and analysis are needed before proceeding with the launch of the STS-133 mission to the International Space Station.

The Program Requirements Control Board met Thursday and reviewed engineering evaluations associated with cracks on two 21-foot-long, U-shaped aluminum brackets, called stringers, on the shuttle's external tank. NASA repaired the cracks and reapplied foam to the exterior of the stringers.  [03 Dec 2010]
 
Assembly Sequence

For future flights in the ISS assembly process, see the Consolidated Launch Manifest.  See NASA's Assembly Sequence and Expedition Crews for the International Space Station.  A graphical image gallery shows the current assembly progress (as seen from the shuttle flights).
 


Notes on Times:  All times are given in 24-hour (or "military") time in the United States Eastern Time Zone.  During daylight savings (April to October), Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) is 4 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), or Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).  The rest of the year times are given in Eastern Standard Time (EST), which is 5 hours later than UTC.  In 24-hour time, midnight is 0000 hours, and noon is 1200 hours.  One hour after noon is 1300, or 1:00 pm.  US Central Time (CST/CDT) need to subtract one hour.  MST/MDT is 2 hours earlier, and PST/PDT 3 hours.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) [Amateur Radio onboard the International Space Station] started on 13 November 2000 with test contacts with ground stations in Russia and the United States.  School contacts are scheduled to resume with contacts with the ISS.  SAREX (Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment) was an older program in which school contacts were made from radio stations aboard the Space Shuttle.  SAREX missions are no longer planned.  Mir QSOs terminated when the Russian Mir Space Station was abandoned in the spring of 2000.  Mir has since been de-orbited.  Click Here for NASA's reference page on amateur radio on the International Space Station (ARISS).

For those interested in scheduling an ARISS contact for a local school, contact the ARRL.
