Yes, just five days away now, if it doesn't slip again.

A lazy Sunday afternoon launch. Bring a picnic.

http://spacelaunch.flatoday.net/ now says NET May 23

But according to "this week in space" on space.com, SpaceX still has the range on 16. and 17. - So IF Atlantis lifts off as planned, they could launch on the 16.
(you can find it here: http://www.space.com/common/media/video/player.php)

Sorry, but I can't reveal this source however did preface my post with the word 'Rumour' :). No I'm not the start of it but can say that the 'source' has been very accurate in the past.

And I know all the normal info' conduits are saying the 16th but the 23rd is also a possible slot when you look at the other activities for the month.

Cheers.

Looks like it's now the 23rd at the earliest :( Usually get some notice of an impending launch 72 hours before however nothing from SpaceX so the 23rd may not be on the cards at the moment either.
Another factor is that there's been no word on the FTS being approved.

Anyone know the earliest date after 23rd?
