During a meeting Monday at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston,
agency officials revised the target launch dates for space shuttle
flights during the next 12 months. The space shuttle and International
Space Station programs agreed to the changes during a meeting to
evaluate options following the STS-117 mission's delay, which was caused
by hail damage to the external fuel tank.
Back at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Fla., in high bay No. 1 of the
Vehicle Assembly Building, technicians and engineers continue the repair
work to the hail-damaged STS-117 external fuel tank.
