CNN.com - NASA scrubs May shuttle launch
NASA has scrubbed the May launch of the space shuttle Discovery to replace four low-level sensors in the external fuel tank -- a process that will take three weeks, space shuttle program manager Wayne Hale announced Tuesday.

hate to say it, but i'd been hoping they'd scrub the may launch in favor of the july 1-19 window. i'm also glad they caught things like this, well, because i don't want to drive down to florida to see a disaster! being selfish, right, but i'm glad they're taking all the necessary precautions to get our astronauts into space and home again safely.

here's to smooth sailing the rest of the way!
