Unofficial Space Shuttle Manifest

Rev 27 Dec 2006

The following is the Unofficial Space Shuttle Manifest. This file gives the
launch dates, orbiter, and payloads for upcoming shuttle launches. The launch
time and orbit parameters are also given where available. Note that the
launch date and time are officially set about two weeks before launch at the
Flight Readiness Review (which usually selects the date and time in the
manifest). The manifest is also subject to a lot of shuffling and date
changing (which leads to the STS numbers not being in order) so beware when
planning to see a shuttle launch.

remember, we warned you.

Abbreviations used in manifest:

STS - (Space Transportation System) number of the flight. The STS numbers
may not be in order due to delays in some missions and changes in schedule once
an STS number has been assigned.

Date - Day Month Year - dd mm yy (Note that most launches are on Thursday.)

Time - Earliest launch time. The "S" means "U.S. Eastern Standard Time" and
"D" means "U.S. Eastern Daylight Time". All launch times are derived from
publically available information.

Missions to ISS have a 5-10 minute launch window, 51.60 degree inclination, and
a 328 km initial altitude.

The abbreviations for the Orbiter names are
Dis Discovery (OV-103)
Atl Atlantis (OV-104)
End Endeavour (OV-105)

Payload - Payloads in the cargo bay that are being launched.
