STS-112 patch (NASA) NASA shuttle managers said Tuesday that they have selected October 2 as the launch date for the shuttle Atlantis on mission STS-112. Shuttle officials completed a flight readiness review on Tuesday and concurred with previously-announced plans to launch Atlantis on the 2nd. The launch is scheduled for between 2 and 6 pm EDT (1800 and 2200 GMT); the exact time will be announced 24 hours before liftoff as a security precaution. The primary purpose of the 12-day STS-112 mission is to install S1, the first starboard segment of the International Space Station's truss. The six-person crew, commanded by Jeff Ashby, includes Dave Wolf, who spent four months on Mir in 1997, and Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin.
