Despite the reports, here and here, over the latest minor scare – you can watch Monday evening’s NASA press briefing here[RealPlayer video] or read the online report with a photo of the piece of foam insulation that caused the conern, and where it came from – The Space Shuttle Discovery is, once again, cleared for take-off.. usual provisos apply with the weather.. follow the launch online – 2.38pm local / 7.38pm here – at the launch blog, or via the NASA TV coverage here.
