The Corsair’s mission is to offer the panhandle the ability to follow NASA’s fourth-to-last shuttle launch, with details about PJC’s alumni, now astronaut commander, Alan G. Poindexter. This will be the second time the Corsair has covered Poindexter in his shuttle flights to space.
The shuttle missions are soon to pull to a close at NASA, with only three left after the STS-131 on April 5, due to government funding coming to a halt for the program.
The Corsair will be covering news conferences, from the prep of the mission to the final launch of the STS-131 at the Kennedy Space Center. We will be using photography, multimedia tools such as: video, Twitter, Facebook, blogging, and the guidance of reporting for full exposure and insight on NASA.
Follow us in our mission to bring you NASA’s famous countdown from 10 to zero and more right to your computer screen at www.ecorsair.com from April 3 to 5+.
