      KENNEDY SPACE CENTER
      SHUTTLE PROCESSING STATUS_______________
      KSC Contact: Joel Wells
      Thursday, April 27, 2000

      (2:30 p.m. EDT)


      MISSION: STS-101 - 3rd ISS Flight (2A.2a) - SPACEHAB DM

      VEHICLE: Atlantis/OV-104
      LOCATION: Launch Pad 39A
      TARGET KSC LAUNCH DATE/TIME: Under review
      TARGET KSC LANDING DATE/TIME: Under review
      LAUNCH WINDOW: 5 minutes
      MISSION DURATION: TBD
      CREW: Halsell, Horowitz, Weber, Williams, Voss, Helms, Usachev
      ORBITAL ALTITUDE and INCLINATION: 173 nautical miles/51.6 degrees

      SHUTTLE PROCESSING NOTE: Following yesterday's scrubbed launch attempt,
      Shuttle engineers at KSC have completed operations to offload Space Shuttle
      Atlantis' external tank. This week, tankers filled with liquid hydrogen and
      liquid oxygen will deliver the commodities to KSC in order to replenish the
      storage spheres at Launch Pad 39A. With crew module destow operations in
      work and no SPACEHAB access required, managers expect minimal work on the
      vehicle.

      Shuttle program managers continue to assess the next available launch date
      for STS-101 and expect a decision before the end of the week. While launch
      date discussions continue, KSC managers will prepare for a launch
      opportunity as early as next week to protect that option should it become
      available. The flight crew has returned to Houston, TX and remains in
      quarantine while launch options are being reviewed.
