NASA: No Flights Until Foam Issue Fixed

SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) - The shuttle Discovery, like Columbia, lost a large chunk of foam debris during liftoff that could have threatened the return of the seven astronauts, NASA said Wednesday.

...``Until we're ready, we won't go fly again. I don't know when that might be,'' Parsons told reporters in a briefing Wednesday evening.

Looks like it could be a while until we get to see another launch.
I am glad to see that they are not just dismissing the problem though. It is good to see that they have the safety of the astronauts in mind. Not to mention their future funding. I hope that this problem gets resolved soon so that they can continue future missions.
