Default Unofficial Space Shuttle Manifest

Rev 15 Oct 2003

The following is the Unofficial Space Shuttle Manifest. This file gives the
launch dates, orbiter, and payloads for upcoming shuttle launches. The launch
time and orbit parameters are also given where available. Note that the
launch date and time are officially set about two weeks before launch at the
Flight Readiness Review (which usually selects the date and time in the
manifest). The manifest is also subject to a lot of shuffling and date
changing (which leads to the STS numbers not being in order) so beware when
planning to see a shuttle launch.

Please send changes and updates to:

You might want to remove that one. Doubt it will be flying again.
Also, I notice Endeavour not flying until mid-05. Is it about to undergo major
maintenance period ? (I take it it will get MEDS ?) If so, could they begin as
soon as the major maintenance for Discovery has been completed, or must they
wait for Atlantis to move to VAB to make room ?

LMC (CMG)
121 15 Nov 04 - Dis-31 ISS-18-ULF1.1, MPLM(P), ICC, LMC


Of the MPLM flights that have occured so far, were they filled to the brim, or
was there still plenty of capacity ? Curious if it will really take 2 MPLM
flights to restock the station's supplies.

Also, since another CMG at the station has exhibited strange behaviour,
shouldn't they slot this in already, or will they wait until it has failed ?
(reminds me of the AE-35 antenna issue).

115 10 Feb 05 - Atl-28 ISS-19-12A, ITS P3/P4 (PV Module, 6 battery sets,

Now, this one is puzzling. Since there seems to be a desire to reduce the
amount of time the station flies in an asymetrical config, shouldn't the order
have been:

P3/P4 (sts115) , S3/S4 (sts117), P5 (sts116), S5 (sts118) ???

Or is there a bigger priority to attach P5 to P3/P4 before the starboard side
is worked on ? (if so, why ?)

Also, the schedule for turnaround seems fairly agressive. Can they really turn
Atlantis around in about 2.5 months ?

Also, the Cupola seems to be the last item being sent up. Have there been any
discussions to ship it earlier so it can contribute to the construction phase
? Seems moot to send it up once you've completed all the construction work.
(especially in light of the Destiny window issues).

Yep, Endeavour is undergoing OMM. Discovery's has finished and it will be
back into the flight rotation as soon as the shuttles start flying again.

Discovery has received MEDS, and Endeavour will get it during OMM. STS-113
will go down as the last shuttle flight with the old-style cockpit.

As far as OPF space goes, there are three OPF bays and three orbiters.
There's no need to put an orbiter in the VAB to make room now.

MPLM flights to restock the station's supplies.


There was a fairly long gap between MPLM flights from (I think) STS-111 and
STS-114. STS-114 was going to be pretty full even if it flew on time, and
the grounding just added to the amount of stuff that needs to go up, hence
the insertion of the extra flight.

Also, since another CMG at the station has exhibited strange behaviour,
shouldn't they slot this in already, or will they wait until it has failed
? (reminds me of the AE-35 antenna issue).


I think the 2nd CMG replacement will not be manifested until it's
unavoidable, and even if it fails prior to Return to Flight, I'd be very
surprised to see it go up any earlier than STS-121. That would allow
engineers the chance to refine the replacement job based on lessons learned
on STS-114.

Now, this one is puzzling. Since there seems to be a desire to reduce the
amount of time the station flies in an asymetrical config, shouldn't the
order have been:

P3/P4 (sts115) , S3/S4 (sts117), P5 (sts116), S5 (sts118) ???

Or is there a bigger priority to attach P5 to P3/P4 before the starboard
side is worked on ? (if so, why ?)


S5 and P5 are comparatively small sections of truss, so the asymmetry isn't
as much of a problem, and their missions double as logistics flights at
pretty convenient positions in the manifest.

Also, the schedule for turnaround seems fairly agressive. Can they really
turn Atlantis around in about 2.5 months ?


You're right, it does seem pretty tight. It's definitely within possibility,
though, and shuttle missions never fly on schedule anyway ;-).
