STS-122 Crew Looks to End Mission Today :: Four landing opportunities are available for space shuttle Atlantis and the STS-122 crew to return to Earth today. Flight controllers and forecasters continue to monitor the weather at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., and Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. Atlantis’ first landing opportunity is at 9:07 a.m. EST on orbit 202. If controllers elect to take it, Commander Steve Frick will perform the deorbit burn to begin the descent to Kennedy. Orbit 203 provides a second opportunity at 10:42 a.m. The first opportunity for the California base is on Orbit 204 at 12:12 p.m. The final opportunity – the second at Edwards – is on Orbit 205 at 1:47 p.m. STS-122 arrived at the International Space Station Feb. 9, delivering the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Columbus laboratory to the station. The crews installed Columbus Feb. 11 and conducted three spacewalks to prepare Columbus for its scientific work. They also replaced an expended nitrogen tank on the station’s P1 truss. In addition, Atlantis delivered a new station crew member, Flight Engineer Leopold Eyharts, an ESA astronaut. He replaced astronaut Daniel Tani, who is returning to Earth aboard Atlantis. STS-122 is the 121st shuttle mission and 24th mission to visit the space station. The next mission, STS-123, is slated to launch in March.

Atlantis on the Way to Florida :: Space shuttle Atlantis has fired its engines, slowing it enough to drop out of orbit. Commander Steve Frick and Pilot Alan Poindexter are guiding the shuttle on its descent to Kennedy Space Center, Fla., where it is scheduled to land at 9:07 a.m. EST.

AZ 110 = ENTRY FLIGHT DIRECTOR = INDEPENDENCE DAY END TITLES.

AZ 74 = SPACE IS NO PROBLEM = STS-122 KSC WHEEL STOP (Mission Elapsed Time: 12 days, 18 hours, 21 minutes, 50 secs | Official Landing Times :: Main gear touchdown: 9:07:10 a.m. EST, Nose gear touchdown: 9:07:20 a.m. EST, Wheels stop: 9:08:08 a.m. EST, Total miles: 5.3 million).

NASA Celebrates 'Super' Mission — Feb. 20 :: Space shuttle Atlantis soared through a thin layer of clouds over NASA's Kennedy Space Center before touching its wheels to the runway Wednesday to end a flawless STS-122 mission. "This was just an unbelievably super mission for us," said Bill Gerstenmaier, NASA's associate administrator for space operations. "I can't think of a better way to start this year out than with this great flight." Commander Steve Frick, Pilot Alan Poindexter and Mission Specialists Leland Melvin, Rex Walheim, Stanley Love, Dan Tani and European Space Agency astronaut Hans Schlegel flew aboard Atlantis on the way back to Earth. Although STS-122 lasted about 13 days, Tani had been living in space and aboard the International Space Station for 120 days by the time Atlantis landed. European Space Agency astronaut Leopold Eyharts launched aboard Atlantis and took Tani's place on the station. Two weeks in space did not feel like a long time, the crew said, because there were plenty of tasks to take care of. "It doesn't feel like about two weeks ago that we launched," Poindexter said. The mission added the European-built Columbus laboratory to the International Space Station. The lab will host experiments from throughout Europe's scientific community and will be an important part of the orbiting research complex. NASA's own Destiny laboratory was already in orbit as part of the ISS. A Japanese laboratory complex will complete a cutting-edge trio of research bases that will host astronauts and experiments at the station. "The station missions now are so busy," Frick said. "It's been a tremendous experience. We were very excited and pleased to bring Columbus to the International Space Station." Space shuttle Endeavour is already perched on its launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center to launch the first module for the Japanese lab. It is to launch March 11. "It feels really good to have mission back-to-back again," said Mike Leinbach, launch director at Kennedy. "The team is really pumped to get going and get ready for their next flight." The seven astronauts will stay at the launch site overnight before flying back to Houston. Atlantis is back inside its hangar at Kennedy where technicians will get it ready for an August mission to perform the last maintenance mission to the Hubble Space Telescope.

 • AZ 95 = HUMPTY DUMPTY'S HULLABALOO (In “AZ-83 SHUT YOUR LOOPHOLE,” Slate’s Jack Shafer goes ballistic on the word “loophole,” examining its etymology, complaining about its misuse, and calling for a ban by journalists. He complains that “this perfectly useful term has been corrupted by rhetorical con artists to mean terrible ‘gaps’ in the law—or in the tax code—that demand ‘closing.’” He says “It’s a loaded, partisan word, one that implies wrongdoing and scandal where none exists, and inserting it into a political argument gives the inserter the upper hand. When loophole creeps into news stories, they start to read like editorials.” July 27th, 2007 by Stuart Froman) = STS-71 MISSION INSIGNIA (AZ-107 COMMANDER ROBERT L.

AZ 109 = HARKEN TO THE WORD OF PLOD (When the Commercial Road Baptist Church in Hereford upgraded its PA system, the last thing they expected was that the new equipment would interrupt sermons with messages from on high. But the church sits below Hereford's main police transmission mast, and the last three months in church have been confusing ones as the word of God is interrupted by the word of Plod. "Echo Alpha, incident at Symonds Yat Rock: climbers in difficulty. Please attend," the PA announced one morning in the middle of a sermon about Jesus being led up the mountain. The minister, the Rev Robert Harris, said: "I know God moves in mysterious ways, but it was unbelievable to hear someone asking for such assistance at such a time"; Independent, The (London), Jun 30, 1995 by Andrew Brown; AZ-99 THE NEXT VOICE YOU HEAR) = HELLO-KITTY-8-PEDAL-PUSH-KITTY = THREE-SECTOR HYPOTHESIS.

AZ 227 = WE DISSECT NATURE ALONG LINES LAID DOWN BY OUR NATIVE LANGUAGE = THE SYMBOLIC ACCOMPANIMENT OF ASSURANCE OR A CONFIRMATION.

AZ 32 = PIGNUS (a pledge or security for a debt or demand, is derived, says Gaius (Dig. 50 tit. 16 s238), from pugnus "quia quae pignori dantur, manu traduntur." This is one of several instances of the failure of the Roman Jurists when they attempted etymological explanation of words. [Mutuum.] The element of pignus (pig) is contained in the word pa(n)g-o, and its cognate forms. A thing is said to be pledged to a man when it is made a security to him for some debt or demand. It is called, says Ulpian, Pignus when the possession of the thing is given to him to whom it is made a security, and Hypotheca, when it is made a security without being put in his possession) = AMERICA = ESA COLUMBUS = HUMBOLDT = JUST WORDS = TBMD SYSTEM = YES WE CAN.
