The shuttle crew is hoping to launch on Tuesday July26 after the launch was scrubbed last week because of a sensor failure on the External Tank

APE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - The astronauts assigned to fly NASA's first space-shuttle mission since the 2003 Columbia disaster returned to Kennedy Space Center from Houston on Friday to prepare for a second launch attempt next week.

NASA called off the scheduled launch of shuttle Discovery on July 13 because of a fuel-sensor problem, delaying the U.S. space agency's quest to return its aging shuttle fleet to flight. It plans to try again on Tuesday.

I'm hoping this one goes off. If it doesnt we may be looking into a launch in September and I know any space buffs like myself don't want that going down.
