I cant believe the timing of this!

I know the problem has been solved now but with so many memories of Columbia still in poeples minds this should never have been allowed to happen!
And if i was NASA i wouldnt have let the public know!

Fingers crossed all goes well!

That window thing BLEW MY MIND! I was furious. They have an image and if you spend billions fixing something for 2.5 years and then a window held on by tape falls, you have no image.

Things like that are the reason people stop caring about NASA.

NASA just announced that they are postponing the launch due to a faulty fuel censor.

NASA has indefinitely put off its long-awaited return to space, saying Friday that engineers were no closer to knowing why a fuel gauge acted up right before a scheduled liftoff two days earlier.

"We are going forward on a day-by-day basis," said deputy shuttle program manager Wayne Hale. "We have got the entire resources of the agency behind us to troubleshoot this problem."

He said that once the problem was identified and fixed, it would be another four days before the shuttle Discovery could launch.

"Everybody is going to want to ask, 'What is that date going to be?' Well, I don't know," Hale said.
