One Step Closer

Today we were informed by NASA that we should continue preparations for a Feb 8th launch. We were told to begin shipping our mice to Kennedy Space Center and we were told that this Thursday we will be having our Flight Readiness Review. While a successful launch of SpaceX from Vandenberg is still the first step (currently scheduled for Saturday, Jan 14th), each day brings us closer to our spaceflight launch!
