Discovery to Launch No Earlier than Dec. 3

Photo Courtesy -- ABC News(HOUSTON) – NASA has announced that they will launch Discovery no sooner than early December after a launch status meeting was postponed Thursday.

The launch status meeting has been moved to Monday due to concerns that more analysis and repairs must be made before Discovery can launch safely.

NASA has been working to fix a leaking hydrogen system that caused the initial delay, and to repair cracks on the exterior of the shuttle.

The Kennedy Space Center will begin the launch countdown no earlier than Nov. 30, and will attempt to launch Discovery no earlier than Dec. 3.
