Some of the Houston Area Browncoats are working the current Shuttle and Station Mission and they got the Captain's quote about love uplinked to the ISS crew in tomorrow morning's daily summary. Below is the review copy of the daily summary.

My source does not know if he can get PAO to release the document, but if anyone wants to request it from the JSC PAO office the document is (he thinks that is the correct office to request it from icon_biggrin.gif )

It's great to have three crewmembers aboard ISS again! Welcome to your new home, Thomas!

"You know what the first rule of flyin' is? … Love. You can know all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughtta fall down… tells ya she's hurtin' before she keels… makes her a home."

Always been a fan of the space program. I have been intereted in the STS missions since I was old enough to know what they were. I attended SPace Camp back in 1987, and after that followed the space program almost religiously after that. I cried at the loss of the Challenger and Columbia crews, and cheered both times we made it back into space. I actually spent most of the 4th of July watching the launch while everyone else was playing pool and blowing things up!

Oh, this is shiny news!

My father introduced me to the "dream of the stars"... read: Nasa and the space program when I was young. My Mom and Dad were both followers of each launch and supporters of whatever needed to be done to get "out into the black"! They lead us children well. I watched the moonwalk all those years ago now and have watched every shuttle launch and failure ( my heart goes out to all the brave astronauts who lost their lives and their families, from the beginning to the most recent loss )

My daughter and I were just talking about how when we were in Branson, supposed to be on vacation, we were holding up folks watching the coverage of the launch troubles because we were concerned and how we rejoiced when it launched!

I can't think of a better thing for the folks up there to hear than our Cap'n's words about flyin'!

My daughter and I were just talkin' just now.. the shuttle is like our beloved ship more than a little.... stuff falls off, bad things happen, but their respective crews just keep flyin'!
I'm so proud of all of us!

That may be why I am so in love with Firefly...it's not the super-modern, nothing-ever-goes-wrong spacecraft...it flies by love and the devotion of those who live in her...kinda like our space program, 'cept without the huge ground crew, the years of training...hmm. Well, the parallel works in my mind!

So, for now, we are back into the black, with more flights scheduled for the future. Let us all keep our hopes up that this mission is a success.

On the launch day of the Challenger in 1986, I had stayed home from school to watch it take off. I was "sick", so I had to stay in bed, but I watched the launch. It was unbelievable. I had seen launches before, and this did not look right. Even after the explanations, I was having a hard time grasping the concept that we had just lost a crew and a shuttle. Still gives me a pang when I think about it.

Now I am learning about scary.


This is wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

I'm keeping an eye on the shuttle (well, figuratively anyway) and hoping the problem with the power unit will be resolved. My hat's off to all of the astronauts who have such dangerous but spectacular jobs, and who take the risks willingly. They're an awesome bunch.

I hope we'll hear their response to the quote.

There will never be a Space Shuttle Serenity. Best we can hope for is a CEV (Crew Exploratio Vehicle) Serenity, that actually sounds like a decent name for the CEV....

Just out of curiousity is there a website for the civilian space program ( I guess that's what it's called.)

Maybe we could write them and suggest nicely and kindly that Serenity would make a fine name for a transport vehicle.

I disagree with the general sentiment .... It's lightyears beyond shiny.

I know I fell in love with NASA and the space shuttle when Columbia had it's first mission and landing. I can tell you how everyone I know was following the Challenger mission for two major reasons (McAlluffe and Onizuka) ...and how crazy the day was when we found out that blew up in flight. I remember my reaction when I heard that Columbia was destroyed -- numbness and disbelief. I seriously wanted to become an astronaut at one point and was really upset that I was automatically excluded from qualifying (horribly nearsighted female here).

Tristan: Space Camp? In Alabama? My sister was in space camp (I was in space academy) in '88. It was probably one of the longest, coolest weeks of my life! If I could scrape up the cashy money (and the time for it) I would sign myself up for the college credit course that's available (if it's still around).

As for Nasa TV, it is available via the web, watch it all the time!
Here's some links for live camera feeds:

http://science.ksc.nasa.gov/shuttle/countdown/video/video.html

Here's the link for the TV:

http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html

As for the space program, try watching The Right Stuff, movie made back in the early 80s. The music is epic! The movie is epic! It was robbed at Oscar time, sorta like..well watch it and see. I love it. Based on a book by Tom Wolfe, it explores the genesis of the space program. You should also check out info regarding Chuck Yeager, talk about a geninue hero! The man is amazing!

I went to Kennedy Space Center when I was 5, WAY back when. I remember actually getting to go inside the MASSIVE Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). The scale of everything is immense. The place is so huge, clouds actually formed inside. They had to put in special units to handle that. Don't get to go inside now, but to go there, and go to the Apollo area, see those HUGE rockets..its humbling. Real humbling when you look in one of those capsules, and realize how much courage it had to take to go up in one when it looks so primitive.

As for Nasa Browncoats, I can't say I'm in the least surprised!

A favorite story I heard about the Apollo program, one of the astronauts said, and I'm paraphrasing, "everyone kept saying, to the moon! to the moon! we kept saying, and back! and back! The and back part was REAL important!"


As for going inside the VAB, it was a LONG time ago. I envy you seeing a shuttle launch. It's on my list of things I want to do in my lifetime!

My 16-year old daughter said she found a Jayne t-shirt, with pic and the quote, "Let's be bad guys", at Hot Topic. I don't know what that's got to do with anything, other than to indicate that we're still growing on this culture...

As to the Columbia disaster, every so often a news bureau will try to sneak the archive footage onto T.V. I have to quickly avert my eyes. I simply cannot watch it happen again...

The closest thing I can compare it to is going to work one September morning and finding my co-workers variously crying or cursing (or both) and then seeing the second airliner strike the other WTC tower...

Both events, viewed live, just knocked the wind right out of my body.



Respectfully,

zoid

P.S.
I still got me an unscratched itch over that 9/11 thing. But then again, I've apparently got a longer recollection than most folks. Watching the news feeds, looks like a day of reckoning may be right around the corner, and high time too. Islamic 'leaders' (as if) are calling to settle the issue "once and for all". Sounds good to me, sport...

As a child of the 1960's I've always watched the space program and eagerly watched the launch July 4.


The NASA channel is on in Raleigh on TimeWarner Cable. I've seen it several times when visiting my brother. Also, we just gotten DISH network satellite TV and it's on that service too if you have the 180 channel service and maybe the 120 channel service too. I've watched it several times during this mission.

Does anyone know when they will be woken up? I'd love to DVR it. It's great that the BDM will be honored that way.

It is excellent to hear about the quote. This is great for Serenity and FF as well as for all of the fans who have been watching for so long. It is also a very fitting quote for all of the crew members. It makes one feel good about what NASA is doing for the shuttle crew members.

We may never get a Shuttle Serenity, but perhaps when the new space program opens in New Mexico (which is only an hour away from me)we can still have Serenity flying in the black.

I'm glad the shuttle progam is back in action.

On a side note, I'll bet $5.00 that from now on, no spaceship will ever be given a name that starts with a "C", as the only two ships that had C names were destroyed. Kinda like how it's bad luck to rename a sea-going boat.

I've got to put up a better antenna so I can listen to the Shuttle downlink audio that is put out over a ham radio repeater in the Atlanta area. Pretty common thing for hams to do, so look for it if you're on 2 meters.

And what I REALLY need to upgrade for is so I can talk to the astronauts while they're on the ISS. Many of them are hams and will chat with people in their downtime, and that's just freaking cool.

Bouncing signals off of the OSCAR sattelites would be cool....oh, lets just be honest. I just plain want to buy better equipment. I also want to quit my job, so I've got a bit of a conflict going on.

one of my Houston BC's reported it in on our messageboard, I strongly suspect he is the guy behind it!

We may never get a Shuttle Serenity, but perhaps when the new space program opens in New Mexico (which is only an hour away from me)we can still have Serenity flying in the black.

Simon: What if he(Mal) tells you to kill me?
Zoe: (without hesitation) I kill you.

Richard Bransons new money making idea. Well, the first ones called V.S.S. ENTERPRISE, so maybe we could ask him politely to make the second one V.S.S. Serenity???

We all hope. But for those who don't know, hopefully no one, there was a shuttle named Enterprise, but it was never sent to space and I think it's in the Smithsonian now.

The shuttle landing was awsome but I still liked the Return to Space mission way better, night landings rule. GO CALIFORNIA!!!!!! Hmmm sorry bout that little outburst. Oh and they next shuttle launch may be late next month.

You can know all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughtta fall down… tells ya she's hurtin' before she keels… makes her a home."



I don't know about y'all ( but I can probably guess ) but reading that made my eyes water..... just a bit.

Sorry, I can't help it. Thanks for the post

People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy. - Joss

SHINYSHINYSHINYSHINYSHINY!!!!!!!
The Love Speech *and* they got down
safely, which I was really worried about.

When the shuttles are up I like to
listen to hear what each day's "wakeup"
music is. I always hope one day we'll
hear something from FF/S.

Before I saw the show I thought Serenity,
which had been described as a rust-bucket,
might be like Mir in its later days --
junky, moldy, leaky -- but thank gosh it
wasn't that bad. ::-)

See, the key is to get this tiny tidbit of information to the news media. What better way to get people interested than saying that our show is NASA and astronaut approved. It would make a nice addition at the end of an ABC news or Entertainment Tonight broadcast.

Anybody got any ideas about how to go about doing that? Where could we write to have them pay attention?
