Tuesday May 5th 2009. Launch -9 days and Counting.


Yesterday I just felt so awful all day that I took very little interest in anything. Today I have felt a little bit brighter, although still terribly weak. Things are progressing quietly with the tests, which seem to be progressing well. Very little news is coming from Kourou, which is as we would expect and hope at this stage. At the moment final launch preparations are being made and we expect everything to be quiet.  If things are not quiet during these final launch checks then we would have a real problem.
