Countdown held at 20 minutes while they upload software to the shuttle.

I wonder if Darkstar is doing that?

T MINUS 20 MINUTES AND COUNTING

Nav
26-07-2005, 14:46:22
ah held at T minus 9 for 45mins... makes a mockery of a countdown if you ask me!

Venom

Are these planned holds? The official launch time on nasa.gov is listed as 10:39

Funko

If they were planned why would they plan for a 45 minute hold on t-minus 9 minutes?

I'm not saying they wouldn't, sounds very NASA to me.... but

Venom

I don't know. I'm not smart enough to work at NASA so I probably don't even belong speculating about it. I'm just wondering why the launch time is listed as 10:39 but the countdown is at 9 minutes?

Funko
26-07-2005, 15:14:37
What time is it there?

Funko
26-07-2005, 15:15:01
Maybe they edited the website.

The other clock is counting down from about 25 minutes.

Venom
26-07-2005, 15:24:12
It's currently 10:24 here.

Funko
26-07-2005, 15:25:02
I am so confused.

Venom
26-07-2005, 15:27:02
Website's not wrong because 10:39 is being listed on the news sites as well. Maybe Nav and protein are being retarded.

Darkstar is a contractor working in Alabama on internal tools, he doesn't need luck...

he doesn't? why, is that a great scenario?

Nav
26-07-2005, 15:36:20
4 minutes now.. as long as they dont make another hold. The times on the BBC website make sense now.. I didnt actually realise they held countdowns...

Gary

It's off

Venom

Looking good so far.

Wow!

That was stunning. Is that external tank camera a new thing? That footage was breathtaking.

Venom
26-07-2005, 15:52:03
Yeah, that's a new camera and is indeed awesome.
