Default Delayed till Thursday

Quote from NASA...

"The Prelaunch Mission Management Team wants to give engineers more time to look deeply into two electrical issues from a main engine computer controller that cropped up this morning. Therefore, the launch of space shuttle Discovery on STS-133 has been delayed until at least Thursday. Mike Moses, chair of the MMT, said the problems are believed to be tied to a circuit breaker in the shuttle's cockpit."

So, here's a thought....if it doesn't go Monday I've heard that the launch will be in December....might this coincide with you being in Florida?

As of Last night it is looking like early December. I have been in Florida 3 years and have never seen one launch. Just never in the right place at the right time. I have heard them come down to land. One time they broke the sound barrier right near Orlando. Scared the heck out of me.
