    T-Infinity for now...

    Stardate 4242.7

    Well with the fuel sensor problems, the Shuttle launch is obviously delayed. Apparently, there will be a huge meeting todday at noon, to help decide the fate of the mission. It is possible that the launch could occur as early as Saturday, but the current "window" is only good until the end of July. If the Shuttle needs to be rolled back into the hangar for the needed repairs, it will undoubtedly be put off until September.

    Fun facts:

    The *real* Enterprise takes off from it's ride...

    The very first Shuttle was called "Enterprise" because NASA received hundreds of thousands of letters from Star Trek fans demanding it be named after the famous ship from television.

    When NASA first rolled the original Shuttle, "Enterprise" out of the hangar, it was done to the theme of Star Trek with nearly the entire cast present for the unveiling.

    Pretty cool huh?
