LAUNCH COVERAGE  


LAUNCH HAS BEEN ABORTED


9:27 p.m. - T-9 minutes and counting. The Ground Launch Sequencer (GLS)
is now controlling the final phase of the countdown to Discovery's
launch. The GLS will monitor approximately 1,000 different measurements
to ensure they stay within their predetermined limits.


9:24 p.m. - The countdown clock will resume in about two minutes and
proceed down to the T-5 minute mark, where it will hold, with the hope
that the weather violation will resolve in time.


 9:22 p.m. Launch Director Mike Leinbach has completed his final launch
poll. He wished Commander Polansky and the crew "good luck and
Godspeed," with the hope that weather will improve and allow a launch
tonight.
