Fresh leak disrupts space shuttle


news.bbc.co.uk

The shuttle is due to launch on Wednesday morning, but hydrogen gas has leaked from a vent line on its external fuel tank.
A previous fuel leak postponed the shuttle's launch on Saturday.

It seams that NASA just can't catch a break lately.

As the article states, if this causes another postponement the next ISS construction mission will not take place until next month.

I am glad they are being more thorough now, this could have gone badly if they had thought they fixed the previous leak and rushed the launch this morning.
