    Though this now is not possible with launch slated for Saturday UTC 
    earliest, there may still be good possibilities for us as we have good early 
    morning passes here which are still likely to be close to rendezvous, 
    Cloud may still be an issue for observation here though prospects seem a 
    little better than they would have been for an earlier launch.
     I note that there is only a launch cut off after 8 days because any later 
    would result in heating problems at the end of the mission:  we are looking 
    forward to an ISS marathon around Christmas!
