Helium And Nitrogen Leaks Prompt The Move
The launch of space shuttle Discovery is now targeted for
Tuesday, Nov. 2, at 1617 EDT.
Managers are meeting to discuss the plan to repair helium and
nitrogen leaks in the pressurization portion of space shuttle
Discovery's right-hand Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS) pod. The
leaks must be fixed before launch and the decision was made to
delay picking up the launch countdown by at least a day.
Since the scheduled launch day fell close to (now on) election
day, NASA Test Director Jeff Spaulding said the launch team members
has been encouraged to take advantage of early voting or absentee
ballot options so they could take part in the elections.
During space shuttle Discovery's final spaceflight, the STS-133
crew members will take important spare parts to the International
Space Station along with the Express Logistics Carrier-4.
