Does any one know when NASA will perform their next launch? I heard sometime this month? But are they planning on doing another one during the 2009 summer? I'm planning to go to Orlando to watch one.

Space Shuttle Endeavour, mission STS-126. November 14, 2008.

There was a Shuttle launch planned for today, but that has been postponed until February due to problems with the Hubble Space Telescope, which is the mission's destination.

Be advised that 2009-2010 Shuttle launch dates are very much in flux at this time. As it stands now, Endeavour will fly in November, Atlantis will repair Hubble in February, and Discovery will fly in March. But it could very easily change so that Discovery flies in February and Atlantis/Hubble is delayed until late April or early May. Shuttle launch dates in the second half of 2009 depend on what happens in February, and we may not have a handle on that until December or January.

Has it been decided whether Nasa will use the Shuttle contingency flights to the ISS, or will Nasa only fly the few flights needed to finish the ISS and the one Hubble mission?

It looks very much like they'll get all on the schedule (including the two contingency flights STS-131 and STS-133) plus one new, additional flight (STS-134 to launch the AMS.) and they'll probably bleed over into Fiscal Year 2011 due to the Hubble delays.

NASA also has worked up contingency plans for 13 additional Shuttle flights beyond STS-133, carrying the program to 2015.

But it will be the decision of the next President and next Congress.

Well if, and that is, of course, a big if, this can be done without harming the Orion Schedule, it could be a good decision... Somehow I think we won't see Ares as planned anyway.

I think the AMS and carrier only weigh about 7 tons. Any idea what else they might add to that flight to use the extra capacity?
