  • Offiacial STS 126 Mission Thread

    Well with STS 126 going up in about a month, I thought it would be a good time to start a thread on it.

    http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sh...126/index.html

    "Veteran space flier Navy Capt. Christopher J. Ferguson will command the STS-126 mission aboard Endeavour to deliver equipment to the International Space Station that will enable larger crews to reside aboard the complex. Air Force Lt. Col. Eric A. Boe will serve as the pilot. The mission specialists are Navy Capt. Stephen G. Bowen, Army Lt. Col. Robert S. Kimbrough, Navy Capt. Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper and NASA astronauts Donald R. Pettit and Sandra H. Magnus.

    Magnus will remain on the station, replacing Expedition 17/18 Flight Engineer Gregory E. Chamitoff, who returns to Earth with the STS-126 crew. Magnus will serve as a flight engineer and NASA science officer for Expedition 18. Magnus will return to Earth on shuttle mission STS-119.

    Endeavour will carry a reusable logistics module that will hold supplies and equipment, including additional crew quarters, additional exercise equipment, equipment for the regenerative life support system and spare hardware.

    STS-126 is the 27th shuttle mission to the International Space Station."

    By the way STS 125, the mission to service the Hubble Telescope has been moved to sometime in early 2008.

            Either that or NASA is way more advanced than they are telling any of us.

              They've been hiding it from us since '85.
