poop we need the telescope fixing - TBH the launch dates have always been pretty 'fluid' one was supposed to go up when we were there 2 years ago and had its date changed about 9 times

The date is now under review.
Here is the launch schedule for the next year or so.

I'm hoping the one scheduled for Oct 15th 2009 is moved back slightly as we will be there from the 20th!!

That's the problem with launches. You can make all sorts of plans and provision to be there to see one, hotel room etc. and then have it scrubbed, right up to the moment it is launched.

It makes it very hard (impossible really) to truly plan to view the launch with any sort of preparation.
