The space shuttle Discovery's countdown was running smoothly Saturday and back on schedule for Monday's launch, after high wind stalled the countdown for seven hours during the night. There were no reasons to believe the launch would not go as scheduled, said Robert L. Crippen, NASA's deputy director of shuttle operations. Launch preparations were stalled for seven hours after winds gusting to 40 m.p.h. slowed some of the final maintenance and testing on Discovery late Friday.
