[i]Here are the updated launch windows for Saturday and Sunday from the Flight Dynamics Officer.
Saturday's launch window opens just 57 seconds prior to the preferred in-plane launch time of 4:02:12pm CDT, 5:02:12pm EDT for a Flight Day 3 rendezvous, due to phasing angles. The FD 3 rendezvous window is 5 minutes long for a FD 3 rendezvous. That is what we will shoot for.
We have both a FD 3 and a FD 4 rendezvous capability on Saturday. The FD 4 window extends a little more than 3 minutes beyond the end of the FD 3 window, ending at 4:10:23pm CDT, 5:10:23pm EDT. If the weather is good and all other orbiter elements are go, we will launch into a FD 4 rendezvous case if we have to.
Sunday's launch window is more conventional, only a FD 3 rendezvous capability with the preferred in-plane launch time of 3:39:40pm CDT, 4:39:40pm EDT. The window is 5 minutes long.[/i]
