press conference postponed

The after-MMT press conference is now postponed to no earlier than 5pm ET. I suspect it will not be the last time it is postponed...

And now (4:50p) it is postponed until 5:30p.

Update 5:30p: now NASA TV states shuttle launch postponement conference no earlier than 6pm ET ... OK, folks, its getting to late for me (11:30p over here). I think the MMT meeting will continue to run for quite a while. If I may guess, I think we will not see a shuttle launch tomorrow (hopefully by expressing that, we actually will have a shuttle launch tomorrow ;)).

Well, tell me a little bit about your visit to Columbus Control Center in Germany. Are you still in Munich? How it affected your plans?

Well, that's a quick story: rumor about the scrub came out just minutes before I wanted to drive down to Munich. So I stayed a little bit longer to get more information... and another bit... I than ended up not driving at all and instead monitoring any news that came in. Luckily, I was able to cancel my hotel room in time. The sad thing is that I can probably not go down to the Control Center now, depending on when they will launch (I do not yet believe in Saturday, but that's a developing story...).
