SIRTF Arrives in Florida

March 2003:
The SIRTF Observatory has arrived at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, marking a historic milestone in a program that was originally selected by NASA in 1984. The Observatory was shipped as part of a three-vehicle convoy from Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale, California. A short distance away, at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, erection of the Boeing Delta-II launch vehicle continues at Launch Complex 17B. SIRTF is scheduled for launch at 4:34:07 a.m (ET) on April 15. Launch coverage will be provided by NASA-TV, available on satellite broadcast and some cable systems. The launch will also be Webcast by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
