Hey Space Placers!
Space Shuttle Discovery will not launch until Dec. 17th at the earliest. NASA is still looking at issues involving cracks in several aluminum stringers on the external tank and problems with the ground umbilical carrier plate, or GUCP.
NASA managers will meet on Dec. 2nd for the next review.

I'll be in Florida in 2 weeks and will get some pics of the big bird on the pad and share them with you.
