Shuttle Update

I had to wake up super early today to support in the firing room for the External Tank tanking test that was run today.  Basically we filled the tank up with fuel as if we were getting ready to launch and then ran the countdown until T minus 31 seconds.  Sensors applied to the tank over the last couple of weeks collected data to determine the stresses on the tank during the fueling procedure.  The good news is the test is now complete and it appears that everything went well.  The bad news is I'm ridiculously tired....
