It’s been over two weeks since our launch was temporarily delayed due to the Space-X explosion that occurred on September 1st. Thankfully the delay isn’t expected to be too lengthy and as of today NASA has given us a few potential dates from our original November 11th launch: Nov. 16, 17, & 23, with November 17th being the current launch date as of 5pm EST, September 20, 2016.
So we are diving head first back into the planning the accommodations for laboratory team’s upcoming trip to the Kennedy Space Center. It will be tough with the many nuances that are encompassed within the travel arrangements from the navigating changing dates to negotiating cancellation and change fees with hotels and airlines, but as long as we stay organized we’ll be able to stay on top of things.
We will continue to keep you updated as we receive updates from the team at NASA.
