Kia Ora. In Stick News today, there is crack in the space shuttle Discovery. But NASA is not worried, and is going to launch it anyway.
Discovery was due to lift off from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA last weekend.
Bad weather caused delays.
Tomorrow morning is the new scheduled lift-off time.
Yesterday, inspectors found the crack in the insulation foam near the shuttle’s fuel tank.
The crack is about 12.7cm by 1cm.
NASA says they don’t need to fix the crack, and they are ready to fly.
And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 4th of July.
