    There was 11 reported lightening strikes around the launch-pad :scared1:

    There are windows for 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th and then not until 27th June.
    Each day the launch time increases on increments of 20 minutes.

    Understand the need for safety but hope that we get a chance to see this :)

    Said on news this morning that if it doesn't go up in next couple of days they will postpone it for a couple of months. We are REALLY hoping to see Discovery go up in august but each time this one gets delayed the chances are getting smaller :sad2:

    We're baffled by that - the weather looked to be improving all the time. Can't imagine what cropped up (although it's obviously better to be safe than sorry) :(
