Mike Leinbach Looks Back

Inside the Firing Room with the Space Shuttle Launch Director, Ken Kremer

"As Shuttle Discovery was being processed in the iconic Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) for her very final mission of exploration (STS 133), I interviewed the Space Shuttle Launch Director Mike Leinbach inside the Shuttle Firing Room 4 at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) - where access is highly restricted. Launch Director Leinbach graciously spoke to me in the midst of an extremely busy and momentous day at KSC as the 100 ton orbiter was hanging by narrow cables from a bridge crane under the roof of the VAB for mating to the ET/SRB fuel stack that will power her last mission to the high frontier."
