This is a launch forecast of anticipated dates for the NASA Space Shuttle and NASA
payloads on expendable vehicles.
U. S. Air Force and commercial launches are not covered. It is an
assessment of the earliest possible dates for
upcoming NASA missions based on current planning or prelaunch preparations,
and
therefore, is not necessarily final.

* denotes a change since the last forecast.
NET denotes a no earlier than launch date.
