In sixteen hours (sixteen real minutes), NASA will launch a spacecraft. As a member of a team of three humans and MorseStation interfaces under the MORSE Command, you will monitor a station and coordinate with the other members of your team in order to ensure the safety of the launch and to decide whether it is advisable to undertake it. You will be one of the station commanders watching a specified area of the Atlantic Ocean over which the launch vehicle will pass. You should coordinate and share resources with your team to remove incursions from the area. Your team should also deploy weather-monitoring instruments to ascertain how the weather might impact the launch. At the end of fifteen hours (fifteen real minutes), your team has a one-hour window within which to decide whether to launch or abort the mission, or whether or not to change your previous decision.
