    Thank you to Robert Holdsworth, for the heads up posted in:

    This dump was not in the original flight plan, and unfortunately the 
    revision was posted to the shuttle web site several hours after it
    had been completed:
    
    http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/shuttle/timeline/sum_blue_fd13.pdf
    
    The revised timeline shows the added waste dump on 2003 Jan 28 from
    about 06:55 to 07:55 UTC.
    
    Also, the dump originally scheduled for 2003 Jan 28 from 17:25 to 18:55
    has been deleted.
    
    I would like to find a way to learn of water dumps as far in advance as
    possible. Ideally, NASA would add a water dump page to its web site, 
    that would be updated automatically, as soon a mission control agrees 
    on a revision.
    
    My guess is that there is no direct connection between mission control
    and the shuttle web page, so some human intervention would be required
    to post updates, as is the case for orbital elements updates. I doubt
    that flight controllers have much time to update public web pages.
