In honor of this historic occasion, the JHU community and friends are invited to the FUSE Launch Day Event, including LIVE video of the launch in Schafler Auditorium (in the Bloomberg Center) and a reception with light refreshments following launch. (Since it will be close to noon, you are encouraged to bring your lunch along -- Let's Do Launch!!)
The event begins at 10 a.m. on launch day, with liftoff scheduled for 11:39 a.m.. Pre-launch commentary begins at 10:45 a.m. sharp, with displays available throughout the Bloomberg lobby area. You may come and go from the auditorium as you please, and you may browse the exhibits at your leisure.
Because of uncertainties of weather and other launch conditions, you are strongly encouraged to check launch status by calling (410) 516-6525 and listening to the message. Or check the FUSE launch status page.
We hope you can join us for the excitement of Launch Day! (But, if you can't, here's information on how to follow the launch on the Internet.) (Sponsored by the JHU Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Maryland Space Grant Consortium
