Seems there were some technical issues that threatened a delay of the launch. Normally I’m all over the news on this stuff but I’ve slacked a bit. I am happy though that we’ll get to see a launch in less than a week.
From NASA’s website:
Discovery will carry a multi-purpose logistics module filled with science racks for the laboratories aboard the station. The mission has three planned spacewalks, with work to include replacing an ammonia tank assembly, retrieving a Japanese experiment from the station’s exterior, and switching out a rate gyro assembly on the S0 segment of the station’s truss structure.
STS-131 will be the 33rd shuttle mission to the station.
We’re behind you Discovery!
