Project Manager

5:05 pm PDT: Solar arrays still to deploy.... but Project Manager Barry Goldstein says this went "absolutely perfectly." Spacecraft is pointing perfecting east-west.

Wow. I can't imagine how he feels. I was a Project Manager at AT&T when we launched a few network projects -- one in particular was a conference calls strung all across the country, 10 or so nodes and 25 or so people pushing switches everywhere, me on another line to marketing telling why our sequence of call-in beeps is slightly off, my marketing manager saying, fuck it, keep going.... That was a really great day. Must be 10 times greater for NASA....
