Re: Nasa keeps shuttle launch time secret



they've hardly ever done it before. thats what i find weird :).

granted, take all the security precautions you want, but holding back the
date, i would see would make a difference.

cause if i was a terrorist, now that i know they arent giving the date, i
would prepare what ever action i was going to take, ready so it can be done
in a mins notice.

all depends on many factors though :)

anyways, anyone know if this mission is going to be giving any ham equipment
to the iss? ie, the sstv equipment?:)
