Careful Testing Under Way After Lightning Strikes
Sat, 11 Jul 2009 10:52 AM CDT

The launch of space shuttle Endeavour was postponed until Sunday evening so engineers could evaluate the spacecraft's myriad systems following 11 lightning strikes in the Launch Complex 39A area.

None of the strikes hit the shuttle or its external tank and solid rocket boosters, but there were strikes to the lightning mast and water tower. The launch pad is equipped with a lightning protection system of wires that is intended to steer bolts away from the shuttle.

"We've seen nothing so far that shows anything affected any of the systems," said Mike Moses, chairman of the pre-launch Mission Management Team.

Two of the strikes were strong enough to trigger an evaluation by engineers just to make sure all of Endeavour's systems are ready for flight. Although early evaluations showed no problems, engineers wanted more time to make sure they have checked everything correctly.

"We need to be 100 percent confident that we have a good system across the board," Moses said.

The launch time for Sunday is 7:13 p.m. EDT. The weather forecast calls for a 60 percent chance of acceptable conditions.

I used to watch these launch as a kid.

One day I'll go to space, even if I have to be a stow-away. damned

We should slice the Military budget and toss it into scientific research and NASA!

If we can stay ahead in technology (and not just Military Tech) we can fix this country. Obesity and Military funding are probably the ONLY things America leads the world in right now.


Give NASA some lunchmoney, and they won't need to use outdated shuttles. :(

I got to see a launch in 82 while in school in florida. 70 miles away and was still very impressive. We were taking final exams that day and the teachers let us go outside for the launch. very cool. Also remember that night a perfect round hole in the clouds with very bright stars.
