Update on the Galileo

Hello Troops,
Several of you sent emails requesting information on the Galileo. I'll take a moment and being everyone up to date.

  • The Galileo is back at Scenic Services in Lindon where it is being reassembled by Kyle Herring and his team.
  • Chairs and desks are being installed. Touch screens, computer and network cables are being installed. Additional work on the power system is being done.
  • The Galileo will be brought to the Space Center September 14th and parked next to 'old' Galileo. Equipment from the current Galileo will be installed in the new Galileo.
  • The current Galileo will be taken apart. We are trying to find a buyer. We'd to find it a good home.
  • The new Galileo will open for missions once the computer programs are written.
  • I'm guessing the Galileo will open for missions around the middle of September.
  • The Galileo officially opens on November 8, 2009 as part of the Space Center's 19th Birthday Celebrations!
I'm hoping that answers all the questions about the Galileo. If not, send them along and I'll do a better job getting your questions answered here on the Blog.

Mr. Williamson
