  • STS-122 tbd (HST SM-4) Pad A Apr , 2004 (HST SM-4)
  • NOTE: This schedule was prepared from various and partly discordant Nasa and other sources, so it should be taken with appropriate care. Actual launch dates are set at the Flight Readiness Review held about two weeks prior to launch.

    International Space Station (ISS) flies in an orbit inclined 51.60 degrees to Earth's equator, while the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is in a 28.47 degrees inclined orbit.

    Orbiter assignments as well as approximate dates are increasingly uncertain with later times, the later STS numbers are not yet assigned and inofficial guesses. Remember: Everything in shuttle schedules is subject to continuous revision.
