    NASA postpones shuttle launch again

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The first space shuttle launch since the Columbia tragedy will have to wait at least a few days more. NASA said it was "releasing the launch team from launch status."

    "It means some people basically get the weekend off," said NASA spokesman Bruce Buckingham.

    No new date was announced, but NASA spokesman Kyle Herring said "late next week is the earliest" a launch may be tried. Details were to be announced later Friday by the mission management team.

    Seems to be quite the technical glitch they are having figuring out the fuel sensor problem. After all though, I suspect that it is far better to stray to the "safe" side of things, than try to meet press deadlines and launch.
