计划搁浅了 29

果然很多事情不是一帆风顺的。原计划给本博客写个类似的”春菜“插件,顺便学习下jQuery什么的。但考研不顺外加春招看起来比较冷清,如果能弄出一两个安卓或者iOS下的app提高下自己的含金量就比较好了。所以……必须搁浅学习jQuery娱乐的计划,暂时转战Cocos2d-x。 这玩意比HGE什么的复杂多了,而且只看到英文文档,估计要弄一段时间。可爱的小插件看起来遥遥无期了。Orz

  1. I find the moments before and after the official service most compelling. The judgement that he was fit enough for slave labour as a child saved his life. Taiwan .

  2. The of the Fars news agency appears to have been duped by a spoof , which claimed that a recent poll had found an “overwhelming majority of rural white Americans” would rather vote for Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than President Obama.

  3. The latest craze in fashion dolls, the Monster High crew are freaky and fabulous and feature lots of clever details that bring the characters to life. The big theme this holiday season is “Dead Tired”, so we’ll be showing dolls in their pajamas and with their bed sets, which include a coffin that doubles as a jewelry box.

  4. The Senate must now vote on its version of the defense authorization bill, after which point the two chambers will have to reconcile their differences. (President Obama has threatened to veto the House bill because it blocks him from closing down the Guantanamo Bay detention center, and limits his power with regard to nuclear weapon reduction, the Associated Press.) Both chambers appear committed to reforming sexual assault provisions within the existing law, however, particularly in light of the recent controversies.

  5. Eric Nordstrom earlier told congressional investigators that he had requested more security but that request was blocked by a department policy to “normalize operations and reduce security resources.” Under questioning, though, he said he had sought mainly to prevent any reduction in staff, rather than have a big increase.

  6. STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: February 10, 2008NASA managers expect German astronaut Hans Schlegel to participate in a spacewalk Wednesday, the second of three excursions planned by the shuttle Atlantis’ crew. Schlegel, a 56-year-old father of seven, originally planned to join astronaut Rex Walheim for the crew’s first spacewalk today. But the EVA was delayed 24 hours to Monday – and Schlegel was replaced by Stan Love – when the European Space Agency astronaut apparently became ill after launch last week.NASA managers have refused to provide any details about the nature of the illness or even confirm who on the shuttle/station complex was sick. They would only say the illness was not life threatening and that no mission objectives were threatened by the spacewalk delay and crew shuffle. Today they would not directly say whether flight surgeons had cleared Schlegel for the second spacewalk.But lead Flight Director Mike Sarafin said “the plan right now is to perform the rest of the mission as planned.” That means he expects Schlegel to be available for the second spacewalk Wednesday.Asked if the medical issue, whatever it was, had been resolved, Mission Management Team Chairman John Shannon would only say: “The flight surgeons, as they always do, they stay in contact with each of the crew members and they discuss their status and then they feed it back to us and it’s an ongoing process. Right now, like MIke said, the plan is as the plan was pre-flight and that’s the way we’re going to go execute it. If they come back to us and say that’s changed, then we’ll react to that change.”Reporter: “So for the time being, the medical issue is resolved?”Shannon: “There are no changes to the plan as it’s currently laid out.”Schlegel looked relatively fit in television shots downlinked from space today as the astronauts worked through a hastily revised timeline, reviewing plans for Monday’s spacewalk, transferring equipment to and from the space station and carrying out a detailed robotic inspection of a slightly pulled-up insulation blanket on the ship’s right rear rocket pod.The so-called focussed inspection was ordered after image analysts noticed a corner of the blanket had pulled up during Atlantis’ climb to space Thursday. In close-up television views today, it appeared the stitching along the seam between two adjacent blankets had come apart, allowing a small, triangular section of one blanket corner to pull up slightly. The damage did not appear serious to the untrained eye, but Shannon said engineers have not yet reached a conclusion on whether anything needs to be done.Overall, he said, Atlantis is in good condition with no signs of problems with the ship’s critical underside heat shield, nose cap or wing leading edge panels, which experience the most extreme heating during re-entry.”The thermal protection system inspections that we do are going extremely well,” Shannon said. “It’s the fastest I’ve ever seen them done on a flight. We have completely cleared the bottom of the orbiter, there are no issues we are working on the bottom, all of the reinforced carbon carbon on the wings and the nose are completely cleared. We’re gathering additional information on the right OMS pod. There’s really no change from (Saturday).”There’s also a couple of small tile chips around the crew windows on the front of the vehicle. Nobody expects them to be any issues at all, we just have not gotten to the point of analyzing them yet. I would expect by Tuesday we’ll have all that work done and be able to completely clear the orbiter.”The astronauts were asked to change out a computer hard drive today in order to downlink photographs shot by a camera in the belly of the orbiter showing the ship’s external tank after initial separation in orbit. Those pictures will be added to other views to help engineers assess the performance of the tank’s foam insulation as NASA gears up to launch shuttle Endeavour on the next station assembly mission around March 11.Shannon said both of Atlantis’ spent booster rockets had been recovered and towed back to port. The right side rocket was at the booster processing facility Sunday and video shot during ascent, possibly showing when the rocket pod blanket peeled back, should be ready for review by early Monday. The ship towing the left-side booster has been held up by windy weather and its video is expected later in the week.”Since the right OMS pod is where the blanket lifted up and we’d like to see when that happened, we were a little bit lucky and got the correct booster in first before the winds kicked up,” Shannon said.Otherwise, he concluded, “we’re really looking forward to watching the crew and the ground ops team place Columbus in its final home and we’re very excited about that tomorrow.”Walheim and Love plan to begin the mission’s first spacewalk at 9:35 a.m. Monday. Their primary objective is to mount a robot arm attachment fitting on the European Columbus research module so Leland Melvin, operating the space station’s robot arm, can pull it out of Atlantis’ cargo bay. Walheim and Love will then make preparations for replacing a large nitrogen tank used for pressurizing the station’s ammonia cooling system.Melvin, meanwhile, will move Columbus into position for attachment to the right side hatch of the forward Harmony module so motorized bolts can engage to lock it in place. The astronauts plan to enter the module for the first time Tuesday. If all goes well, Walheim and Schlegel will stage a second spacewalk Wednesday with Walheim and Love carrying out a third and final excursion Friday.Here is a timeline of major events Monday (in EST and mission elapsed time; includes revision C of the NASA TV schedule):EST……..DD…HH…MM…EVENT02/11/0804:45 AM…03…14…00…STS/ISS crew wakeup05:20 AM…03…14…35…EVA-1: 14.7 psi airlock repress/hygiene break06:15 AM…03…15…30…Flight director update on NASA TV06:30 AM…03…15…45…EVA-1: Resume airlock preps06:35 AM…03…15…50…ISS daily planning conference08:00 AM…03…17…15…EVA-1: Spacesuit purge08:15 AM…03…17…30…EVA-1: Spacesuit prebreathe09:05 AM…03…18…20…EVA-1: Airlock depressurization09:15 AM…03…18…30…Shuttle KU-band antenna stowed for Columbus unberthing09:35 AM…03…18…50…EVA-1: Spacesuits to battery power09:40 AM…03…18…55…EVA-1: Airlock egress09:55 AM…03…19…10…EVA-1: Power-data grapple fixture (PDGF) setup11:35 AM…03…20…50…EVA-1: PDGF installation on Columbus module01:50 PM…03…23…05…Station arm (SSRMS) grapples Columbus module01:50 PM…03…23…05…Harmony prepared for Columbus attachment02:05 PM…03…23…20…EVA-1: Walheim: nitrogen tank removal preps02:10 PM…03…23…25…SSRMS unberths Columbus module02:15 PM…03…23…30…EVA-1: Love: Nitrogen tank removal preps03:35 PM…04…00…50…EVA-1: Payload bay cleanup and airlock ingress04:05 PM…04…01…20…Columbus first stage bolting04:05 PM…04…01…20…EVA-1: Airlock repressurization (spacewalk ends)04:15 PM…04…01…30…Spacesuit servicing04:25 PM…04…01…40…Columbus second stage bolting04:40 PM…04…01…55…Columbus attachment to Harmony complete05:00 PM…04…02…15…Centerline berthing camera removal06:00 PM…04…03…15…Mission status/MMT briefing on NASA TV08:15 PM…04…05…30…ISS crew sleep begins08:45 PM…04…06…00…STS/ISS crew sleep begins09:00 PM…04…06…15…Daily video highlights reel on NASA TVAtlantis’ mission was extended one day when NASA managers decided to delay the first spacewalk to Monday.

  7. STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: February 1, 2008NASA managers today decided to press ahead with preparations for launch of the shuttle Atlantis Feb. 7 pending final work Monday to make sure a kinked Freon flex hose retracts as required when the ship’s payload bay doors are closed for flight.Assuming no other problems develop, engineers plan to restart Atlantis’s countdown at 5 p.m. Monday for a launch attempt at 2:45:28 p.m. Thursday. This will be NASA’s third attempt to launch Atlantis on a space station assembly mission following delays Dec. 6 and 9 because of problems with low-level fuel sensors in the shuttle’s external tank.Those problems were traced to a suspect wiring connector at the base of the tank that has since been modified to prevent the sort of intermittent continuity blamed for the December delays. Engineers are confident the sensor circuits will work properly when the tank is fueled for launch Thursday.The Freon coolant line issue cropped up earlier this week when the shuttle’s cargo bay doors were opened for routine payload processing. Engineers noticed one of four metal-jacketed flex hoses that carry Freon coolant to and from radiator panels mounted on the inside of the ship’s cargo bay doors was sharply kinked.The shuttle is equipped with two Freon coolant loops to dissipate the heat generated by the ship’s myriad electronic systems. The concern in this case was the possibility that launch vibrations could damage a weakened flex hose enough to cause a leak.While loss of a Freon coolant loop would not pose a safety of flight risk, it could force mission managers to shorten a flight and extensive tests were ordered to make sure the hose aboard Atlantis will function properly after launch.As it turns out, engineers discovered a similar kink in a hose aboard Discovery late last year. That hose was removed and subjected to the sort of flexing it could expect to see over about a dozen door opening-closing cycles. A NASA spokesman said the hose continue to work normally with no signs of any internal damage.As a result, NASA managers called off plans for a Saturday engineering meeting and decided to press ahead with launch preparations. When Atlantis’s payload bay doors are closed overnight Sunday, engineers will manually guide the kinked line into its storage container, using an improvised tool when the right-side door closes far enough to limit access.”They’ll assist the hose as the door is closing for flight,” the spokesman said. “They’ll assist it by hand until it gets closed enough and then they’ll use this pole. They’ll use it as a guide, they won’t put any pressure on it.”Assuming the hose retracts as required, engineers will start the countdown as planned Monday afternoon. The issue will be discussed again at management review Tuesday.Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:POST-FLIGHT READINESS REVIEW BRIEFING VIDEO:STS-122 ASTRONAUT BIOGRAPHIES VIDEO:NARRATED OVERVIEW OF ATLANTIS’ MISSION VIDEO:INSIGHTS INTO COLUMBUS SCIENCE LABORATORY MORE:John Glenn Mission PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The historic first orbital flight by an American is marked by this commemorative patch for John Glenn and Friendship 7.Final Shuttle Mission PatchFree shipping to U.S. addresses!The crew emblem for the final space shuttle mission is available in our store.

  8. The crew was awakened at 5:32 a.m. by a recording of “The Mickey Mouse Club March” beamed up from mission control. The spacewalk, the 112th devoted to station assembly and maintenance since construction began in 1998, was scheduled to begin at 10:32 a.m. (as of 7:30 a.m., the astronauts were running about a half-hour ahead of schedule).

  9. Endeavour took off Feb. 7 and docked with the space station two days later. The day after that, Doi, operating the shuttle’s robot arm, moved a Japanese storage module into position for attachment to the station while Linnehan and Reisman staged the mission’s initial spacewalk.

  10. STORY WRITTEN FOR & USED WITH PERMISSIONPosted: March 14, 2008Spacewalkers Richard Linnehan and Garrett Reisman have completed preparations for moving a Japanese logistics module from the shuttle Endeavour’s cargo bay to the international space station’s Harmony connecting module. Japanese astronaut Takao Doi and shuttle commander Dominic Gorie, operating Endeavour’s 50-foot-long robot arm, plan to pull the new module out of the cargo bay around 2 a.m.”It’s a very delicate maneuver,” Doi said before launch. “It will be challenging, but we have been training hard for the past year and I’m very confident we will succeed.”The module will be temporarily mounted atop Harmony while the station crew awaits delivery of Japan’s Kibo research lab in late May. The much larger experiment module will be mounted to Harmony’s left port and the logistics module launched aboard Endeavour will be moved from Harmony’s upper port to a hatch on the far end of the Japanese lab.Reisman and Garrett prepared the logistics module for its trip to Harmony by removing thermal covers and unplugging power cables to internal heaters. The remainder of the spacewalk, the first of five planned for Endeavour’s mission, will be devoted to initial assembly of the Canadian Space Agency’s special purpose dextrous manipulator, or SPDM, robot.Engineers have not yet been able to route power to the disassembled robot’s components, but they are optimistic about resolving the glitch. A software patch has been written to eliminate a potential timing problem between a power distribution unit and a work station computer in the Destiny laboratory module.Linnehan and Reisman plan to attach hand-like grippers to each of Dextre’s two arms during today’s spacewalk. The arms will be attached to the robot’s torso during a second spacewalk overnight Saturday. Engineers hope to have the power problem fixed by then.Additional coverage for subscribers:VIDEO:NARRATED PREVIEW OF SPACEWALK NO. 1 VIDEO:THURSDAY’S MISSION MANAGEMENT TEAM UPDATE VIDEO:THE FLIGHT DAY 3 HIGHLIGHTS MOVIE VIDEO:DEXTRE PALLET MOVED FROM SHUTTLE TO STATION VIDEO:THURSDAY’S MISSION STATUS BRIEFING VIDEO:SHUTTLE ENDEAVOUR DOCKS TO SPACE STATION VIDEO:ENDEAVOUR PERFORMS THE 360-DEGREE BACKFLIP VIDEO:VIEWS OF THE SHUTTLE APPROACHING FROM BELOW VIDEO:NARRATED ANIMATION OF PREVIEWING THE DOCKING VIDEO:UPDATE FROM MISSION MANAGEMENT TEAM VIDEO:THE FLIGHT DAY 2 HIGHLIGHTS MOVIE VIDEO:WEDNESDAY’S MISSION STATUS BRIEFING VIDEO:ANIMATION OF THE HEAT SHIELD INSPECTIONS VIDEO:NARRATED TOUR OF ENDEAVOUR’S PAYLOAD BAY VIDEO:THE FLIGHT DAY 1 HIGHLIGHTS MOVIE VIDEO:INSIDE MISSION CONTROL DURING LAUNCH VIDEO:THE FULL LAUNCH EXPERIENCE VIDEO:SHUTTLE ENDEAVOUR BLASTS OFF!

  11. Dextre was launched disassembled. During the crew’s first spacewalk last week, gripper-like hands were attached to each of the robot’s 11-foot-long arms. The aseembled arms then were attached to Dextre’s torso during a spacewalk overnight Saturday.

  12. The Endeavour astronauts are gearing up for a busy day of work to move the Canadian Space Agency’s Dextre robot to its new home on the space station’s Destiny lab module. The robot’s construction pallet, meanwhile, will be moved back to the shuttle’s payload bay for return to Earth.

  13. Lead Flight Director Mike Moses said one of the goals of the RPCM swap-out and cable reconfiguration was to restore lost redundancy to control moment gyro No. 2, one of four used to stabilize the space station and change its orientation as required. Because of the earlier RPCM failure, CMG-2 was tied into the power circuit supplying CMG-3.

  14. With Linnehan once again on the end of the station’s robot arm, the astronauts will wrap up assembly of the Canadian Space Agency’s special purpose dexterous manipulator (SPDM) robot, known as Dextre, by removing thermal covers and installing the robot’s tool carrier. Behnken also will install a camera pan and tilt unit and prepare the Spacelab pallet that carried Dextre’s components into orbit for its eventual reberthing in the shuttle for the return to Earth.

  15. “We have margin in the schedule to absorb small delays and we have learned a lot in the process of putting these tanks together so that the ’09 and ’10 tanks will flow much faster,” he said.
