Well, STS-129 and the ISS have closed the hatches and are preparing for a departure that's scheduled to take place at 19:53 today, Wed 25 November 2009 (Brisbane time).  The mission has gone well to date and aside from wishing I was up there with them, I am glad that the Atlantis crew are heading back home safely.  Atlantis is the one Orbiter that can't accept power from the ISS, so needs to have quicker missions due to needing to supply its own power throughout the entire mission.

Only 5 more Shuttle missions remain and I'm trying to work out how I can spend between February 2010 and whenever STS-133 eventually lands over in Florida without our clients noticing it too much...
