Shuttle launch set after leak repairs

March 15, 2009|Times Wire Reports

NASA is unsure what caused the hydrogen gas leak that prevented space shuttle Discovery from flying, but will attempt another launch today. Shuttle managers are hopeful that repairs at the Cape Canaveral launchpad have solved the problem. There is "a potential risk" that the leak will recur, said Mike Moses, chairman of the mission management team. That would mean yet another delay for the international space station construction mission, which is already more than a month behind.
