Shuttle Back on Pad

NASA TV showed the crawler marching toward the VAB. The NASA press conference spoke of arranging a new schedule with the Russians if they missed September 7. The news reported what they had.

However, back in the real world, the crawler was reversed, and went back to the pad, after Tropical Depression Ernesto's forecast winds were below critical velocities.

Tom Sundstrom sends these useful links for hurricanes in Florida:

In poking around the 'net I found CBS4 streaming
continous live video of its news broadcasts. Grab the Real or the freeware
VLC (made for Mac, Win, Linux, Unix) player and tune to to
watch breaking stories.

I have other hurriicane links at if you would like to use them.

Our own 2006 hurricane list is here.
