Let's Drop The Big One Now from Ares by Graham Warwick
Parachute manufacturer Airborne Systems is claiming a successful drop of the world's largest autonomously guided ram-air parachute. The GigaFly - a 195-ft. span, 10,400 sq. ft. parafoil - is designed to deliver 42,000 lb. of cargo. For the test, it was dropped from a C-130 at 15,000 ft. carrying a 33,000-lb. load. Airborne Systems says the parafoil touched down at 14 ft./sec., less than 900 ft. from it's intended target (I'm assuming that's good).

The Best View of 2 Space Shuttles!!!! from How I Am Becoming An Astronaut by Damaris B. Sarria
If all goes according to schedule we should have a unique view at Launch Complex 39 tomorrow morning. Endeavour arrived at Pad B this morning and certain operations will keep the Rotating Service Structure (RSS) retracted (as in the launch configuration) until mid morning. Meanwhile over on Pad A, Atlantis is waiting for the delivery of the Hubble Space Telescope Service Mission (HST SM-4) payload. In preparation for the canister delivery and lift into the Payload Changeout Room (PCR), the Pad A RSS will also be retracted tomorrow morning. So for a few hours tomorrow morning (somewhere between 7:30am – 10:30am) we will have a clear unobstructed view of both vehicles on the pads. The only other time this occurred was nearly 20 years ago, in September of 1990 (see photo above). Columbia (STS-35) was on Pad A and Discovery (STS-41) was on Pad B.
