Shuttle Atlantis Launch - Scrubbed. Launch Saturday
*EDIT* Launch Scrubbed today. Tune in tomorrow

1453 GMT (10:53 a.m. EDT)

SCRUB! The engine cutoff sensor issue has forced NASA to scrub today's countdown. The plan calls for the external tank to be drained and another countdown performed tomorrow to evaluate how the hydrogen fuel level gauge acts. If it behaves in the same manner, officials could allow Atlantis to launch with only three of the four sensors working. Tomorrow's launch time is 11:15 a.m. EDT.

The slight delay in the start of fueling is the result of workers having to replace a faulty gaseous nitrogen purge control valve, NASA spokesman Bruce Buckingham says.


0653 GMT (2:53 a.m. EDT)

FUELING UNDERWAY. The filling of space shuttle Atlantis' external fuel tank with a half-million gallons of supercold propellants has begun at launch pad 39B.

The tanking operation commenced with the chilldown thermal conditioning process at 2:49 a.m. This will be followed by the slow-fill mode and then the fast-fill mode.

There's supposed to be only a 30% chance of a no-go today because of weather. It will probably launch unless there is another hardware glitch.

Re: Shuttle Atlantis Launch - Scrubbed. Launch Saturday
Launch might be questionable due to a problem with one of the fuel cells.

Fueling has already started so the fuel cell isn't an issue they care about anymore.


Anyone know if Discovery Science channel or Discovery HD Theater channel shows launches live? I could at least DVR it.

Re: Shuttle Atlantis Launch - Scrubbed. Launch Saturday
I'm sure I heard them say there is 3 fuel cells and one of them is on the blink but the shuttle can re-enter with 1 fuel cell though its not ideal.

That did seem pretty cool with still going ahead but there is slight doubt.

Thats what I picked up anyway.
