Talk Today of Possible STS-134 Launch Delay

As of 8:30 am today, NCESSE had not received any word as to whether the launch of STS-134 will be postponed. However, the Daily Beast is reporting that the launch of STS-134 may be put off until April 29. Until there is official word from NASA, we have no choice but to assume the launch remains scheduled for April 19. A launch delay would obviously impact both submission of the flight ready experiment samples, and the launch viewing plans.

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S., and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory. SSEP is the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
