It's a scrub

It is a scrub, so here are some pictures Andy took with my camera last night at work. I am going for a swim and will post more later.

    Wow, those are pictures you never see. Thanks so much for sharing. What a bummer about today. I’ll be keeping my eyes and ears to the ground waiting to hear when the next shuttle launch is.

    Sorry things didn’t work out today, but thank goodness the problem was detected. And thanks for the pictures! They’re incredible!

    Very cool shots. Hope things go smoothly after this delay.BTW: Is there any policy on taking pictures so close to the pad?

    It is looking like it might be Monday before they try to launch again. They said on the news, best case scenario would be Saturday. Thanks for all your comments.Grafxdude, we can take pictures almost anywhere. In fact, during processing each orbiter is photographed like you wouldn’t believe. Every inch inside and outside is photographed thorougly and all of it is saved and can be referred back to.

    I hope it goes up on Saturday, I know there a lot of anxious people there wanting to see it. All the locals are rooting for it. I wish I could just go outside and see it, but I will definitly be watching it on TV.

    I remember when I was a kid waiting in a small primary school classroom around a TV set for the first space shuttle to launch. We were all very excited, and then as now there were endless delays and waiting for the right weather conditions.The space shuttle is an amaizing machine, but when it does finally launch this time it will be the beginning of the end for the old matriarch. It looks like the space race is hotting up again and in the coming years there will be alternative vehicles and increased competition from other nations. It’s probably a good time to be in the space industry.
