In the Columbus Control Centre at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) facility in Oberpfaffenhofen, the signals are 'green'. Flight Director Norbert Porth must agree with his system expert, Thomas Hiriart, before giving the Shuttle Launch Director at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida the 'Go' for launch of Atlantis. By doing so, he confirms that the European International Space Station (ISS) research module Columbus is configured for the upcoming mission.
