RE: STS numbers.



You may be confusing "STS-3A" with the next Hubble Service Mission,
which was called HST 3A for a while to distinguish it from the original
repair mission #3, which had been planned for the year 2000, but was
pushed up because of failing gyros.  That mission will be STS-103,
scheduled for launch on 14 October 1999.  A list of upcoming missions
can be found at our club's web site,
http://www.qsl.net/w2vtm/shuttle.html.  There's also info on the SAREX
mission of 20 July 1999.  There are links to other pages having
information on tracking and pass prediction software and another with
links to numerous space-related informational sites.  Enjoy.

I am familiar with numbers like STS-93, but sometime soon a mission
numbered STS-3A will occur.  How do they come up with these designators?
