So looks like this shuttle launch is being pushed back again…
I suppose it’s not surprising really when you see where the problem was
And i’d assume this means NASA might have some juggling to do in terms of the Atlantis launch, currently scheduled for June 28th, although i have a feeling we wont get confirmation of this till maybe the 10th (the day Atlantis was due to move to the VAB).
On the bright side we could see the space shuttle programme live on a little bit longer, as long as the American government doesn’t decide to cut it’s losses and scrap STS-135 completely, i’ve heard wilder ideas.
UPDATE: some evidence to support my theory that the Atlantis mission will be delayed?
