seems that if the mission cannot be started at the next scheduled time, the mission could be delayed until december. to me, one of the most constant memories of shuttle missions were constant delays. just sayin' ;)

too many imho. i am not necessarily saying it is a bad thing, just that there were a lot of delays. i think the families of the astronauts probably appreciate the delays much more than the common american. :)
