Rare afternoon launch @ MARS Wallops Island, VA on Wednesday.
Nice, scenic day trip for those in the Mid-Atlantic who can make it.

I didn't know "en work" was a phrase.

And what did "lets not forget to plant our turnips" mean at about T-14 minutes?

"en work", an acronym maybe? 'Turnips' relates to one of the many school
science experiments carried on-board.
