The Mission X crew just got back from training Challenge team leaders for the beta test that starts next week in Texas. It was awesome to see the enthusiasm these team leaders had for their students, for space exploration, and for improving personal fitness together. We had future psychologists, doctors, poets, poultry scientists, and more... and ALL of them are great examples to the Fit Kids and the community to get everyone excited about exploration. STS-131 is expected to launch Monday morning, April 5, at 5:21 am Texas time. This mission is a great example of what the Challenge is all about: this mission has men and women, rookies and veterans, crew members from different countries. They will carry food and science supplies up to the International Space Station, a freezer called MELFI that keeps things at -80 degrees (brrr!), a laser camera that will help the shuttle and the station dock to each other, and much more equipment. They plan to do three spacewalks.
