The Flight Readiness Review for space shuttle Atlantis STS-125 mission to the Hubble Space Telescope began at 8 a.m. EDT this morning at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Managers will hold a news conference on NASA TV following the review to announce the official launch date. The briefing is expected to begin no earlier than 5 p.m. EDT.
Editor's note: The press conference has been moved up to 5 p.m. EDT from the earlier announced 6 p.m.
As well for the first time the review meeting is Twittering live status updates periodically on NASA's News Twitter feed during the meeting. They just broke for lunch but will resume afterward and start off with the Orbiter Project's section.
