Antares, la fusée, est prête à décoller demain dimanche après trois reports (et le reste) dus à une météo capricieuse. Il a fait très lourd humide et orageux ces derniers jours. Bah, on s’y fait, quand je pense au frisquet temps en Europe. Hi, hi, hi ! Prochaine news : visite de la fusée et de ses installations.
NASA Wallops Flight Facility : foreign reporters are in the same terms agreed than American journalists. Now !

The media center itself is enclosed in a corner of the small museum with what it takes to work there : quiet places and and there is no need need to be searched like customs !
So, to get to the Center, I have followed, from Salisbury (Maryland), the National road 13 South, turned a few paths and, along large stretches greenish-yellow where it's like arriving at a golf course, we see large satellite dishes and some short buildings. Another route to fork and we arrive at the Visitor Center on a « small » but extend parking. And, we are arrived. The building is in front of us.
The rocket is now ready to fly tomorrow Sunday after three postponements (and the rest) due to unpredictable weather, very heavy, wet and stormy in recent days. Well, we made it, when I think the chilly weather in Europe. Hi, hi, hi ! Next news: a tour to visit rocket and its facilities.
