Still, I'm hoping for a brighter future in space exploration, one in which we stretch our abilities and our vision and head off to exciting locations where we may learn much that will help us all. I also hope we regain a vision of ourselves in a vast universe and respond with awe.
As of this writing, the SpaceX Falcon rocket with its cargo filled Dragon capsule is scheduled for a predawn lift off at 4:55 am on May 19, 2012. Here's hoping that schedule sticks and the flight works beautifully. As of today, the International Space Station is fully crewed and ready to accept the payload. Good luck to all.
