On remarquera la mission STS 122 particulierement attendu par tous,
en octobre, et en avant premiere, Columbus, enfin !
En decembre, ca sera le tour de Kibo avec STS 123
croisons les doigts que tout marche sur des booster.

A variety of vehicles, launch sites on both U.S. coasts, shifting dates and times... the NASA Launch Schedule might seem confusing, but our Launch Schedule 101 explains how it all works!
Date/2007 Mission Vehicle Launch Site
Feb. 15 THEMIS
THEMIS will study the dynamic and colorful eruptions of auroras.
Launch Time: 6:07:37 p.m. - 6:26:37 p.m.
March 16* STS-117
STS-117 will deliver a second starboard truss segment and a third set of solar arrays and batteries during the Space Shuttle Program's 21st mission to the International Space Station.
April 25¹ AIM
A NASA space mission designed to study the highest clouds in the earth's atmosphere -- clouds at the edge of space.
Launch Time: 4:25:16 p.m.
June 20 Dawn
The Dawn Mission will be the first time a spacecraft will orbit two planetary bodies on a single voyage as it studies Ceres and Vesta.
June 28* STS-118
STS-118 will deliver the S5 Truss and will be the twenty-second mission to the International Space Station.
July 15*¹ Missile Defense Agency Block 2010 Spacecraft Risk Reduction
To be launched by NASA for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), STSS Block 2010 Risk Reduction serves as a pathfinder for future launch and mission technology for MDA.
Aug. 3 Phoenix
Phoenix is the new Mars lander mission and the first of NASA's scout missions. Phoenix will work to uncover clues in the martian arctic soils about the history of water and potential for habitability.
Sept. 7* STS-120
STS-120 will be the twenty-third mission to the International Space Station and deliver the U.S. Node 2.
STS-122 will deliver the Columbus European Laboratory Module and will be the twenty-fourth mission to the International Space Station.
Oct. 7 GLAST
An heir to its successful predecessor – the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory – GLAST will have the ability to detect gamma rays in a range of energies from thousands to hundreds of billions of times more energetic than the light visible to the human eye. Radiation of such magnitude can only be generated under the most extreme conditions, thus GLAST will focus on studying the most energetic objects and phenomena in the universe.
Nov. 25 Missile Defense Agency STSS Block 2006
To be launched by NASA for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), STSS Block 2006 will demonstrate the key functions of a space based sensor, passing missile tracking data to missile defense interceptors with the accuracy and timeliness necessary to enable them to successfully intercept missile targets.
STS-123 will deliver the pressurized section of the Kibo Japanese Experiment Logistics Module on the twenty-fifth mission to the International Space Station.
Dec. 6* NOAA-N Prime
The NOAA-N Prime is a polar orbiting satellite used in weather and climate prediction by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
*No Earlier Than (Tentative)
**To Be Determined
