    <snip> "and waiting until after a blackout period in May that prohibits the
    shuttle from being docked to the station due to thermal constraints caused
    by high solar angles." <snip>
    Can someone please help me understand this "blackout period".  We're
    perihelion on December 22 aren't we?  I can't understand, why the May
    blackout?  Mother's Day? 8^)
    Clear skies,
