starting at 5:30 a.m. EDT (0930 GMT)

The first time in five years that I’m visiting America…


#3

i am debating whether to set an alarm or just stay up…


#4

I think I’m probably going to just stay up, though I usually stay up till 1 a.m. anyways so pushing it till 2:30 a.m. shouldn’t be that hard to do.


#5

You know what else is on the Cygnus…


#6

Here is the live Nasa stream for anyone who wants it since @xeni’s isn’t currently working.


#7

Bu it only shows Mission Control, we don’t actually get to see the ISS. I am disappoint.


#8

No, we got to see multiple cameras from the ISS, including a control monitor feed with cool HUD-type overlays. The Canadarm 2 latch maneuver succeeded right before the video uplink was lost. It was like ka-chunk cut to black

It was pretty cool!

(I did appreciate that this Mission Control team was allowed to dress in normal “business-casual” instead of looking like a team-building exercise for Best Buy employees, as they sometimes have in the past.)

Aww man I musta had the wrong feed.
