STS-134: Ready to blog

20. April 2011, 13.00, Marco Trovatello, 0 Comment/s
Since yesterday's Flight Readiness Review (FRR) confirmed a "Go" for Endeavour's Launch on 29 April it's now certain that we (me, that is) will continue blogging here starting next Thursday, 28 April, where there will be first photo opportunities at Kennedy Space Center. Unfortunately my DLR colleague Thilo Kranz, fellow blogger and excellent shuttle photographer, will not be there this time.

But I'll have the pleasure to not just share the KSC press site with hundreds of space science journalists from all over the world, but also with my ESA colleague Daniel Scuka, who will cover STS-134 at blogs.esa.int and privately at esaops.posterous.com/. Please also do not miss the 134 Tweetup Blog.

STS-134 will carry the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) to the International Space Station. AMS is a european fundamental physics experiment which will search for dark matter and so called 'dark matter'. Please check the AMS website for more details.
