Launch Delayed by Fuel Cell Problem



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

*Launch Delayed by Fuel Cell Problem *

The launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis was postponed today for at least
24 hours because of an issue with the shuttle's fuel cell number 1. A
 short (a spike and drop in voltage) in the fuel cell coolant motor
was seen shortly after the cell was activated.

The Mission Management Team is scheduled to meet
 at 1p.m. EDT (1700 UTC today, and a news conference
will follow.
