This is our view from the NASA Causeway Viewing Site
across the water from the launch site,
Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center,
at Cape Canaveral, Florida, of the
Space Shuttle Atlantis lifting off at 3.07am on 15 May 1997 on mission STS-84
to refurbish the Mir spacestation.
Atlantis carries aloft mission specialist
Ed Lu, a former postdoc, is co-author of the famous HKLM paper ``Reconstructing the Primordial Spectrum of Fluctuations of the Universe from the Observed Nonlinear Clustering of Galaxies''.
Update: Because of delays in the launch of the Russian Service Module, mission STS-101 has been split into two, the second one being STS-106, scheduled for launch in late August 2000. Ed Lu will be on the second mission, STS-106.
