New launch - targeted for 11:15 a.m. on Saturday.

Sept. 8, 10:54 a.m. EDT
The launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis has been scrubbed until Saturday due to a problem with one of the vehicle's external tank ECO sensors. NASA managers will hold a press conference no earlier than 12:30 p.m. EDT to discuss the sensor issue and tomorrow's liftoff attempt. The press conference will be carried live on NASA TV.

The new launch time for Atlantis is targeted for 11:15 a.m. on Saturday.

The ECO sensor issue arose earlier in today's countdown when launch controllers detected a problem with one of the four ECO sensors inside the hydrogen section of the space shuttle's orange external tank. The sensors monitor hydrogen levels inside of the tank and trigger the orbiter's engines to shutdown when gas levels drop below a specified level.

annoying sensors...

I can't tell you how annoying this is - it is just very annoying. I for one am looking forward to a safe mission and the astronauts gettin' lotsa work done on ISS.

Finally - we launched!

so far, so good. The first 24hrs is going to be a busy one - usually they get to orbit, check out the shuttle systems for any odd behavior, and then go to sleep. But I think this time, they're going to get to work using the shuttle robotic arm...and then go to sleep...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
