Fencing Sculptor's Diary

The Ramblings of a Reluctant Civil Servant

T minus 28 hours 32 minutes
Nasa have just found 'a' crack in the foam on Discovery's ET.

Rather than the BBC's headline - Crack found in shuttle tank foam - implying that a class A drug was found on board the shuttle ! (They are getting as bad as the Evening Standard!)

I hope, and it is one bloody HUGE hope that sense prevails and the scrub the launch until any obvious safety concerns can be eliminated.

... IMO It's simply not worth the risk to go for a launch knowing that there is something wrong simply to proceed with a launch in Independence Day.
