Space Shuttle DiscoverySpace Shuttle Discovery‘s final launch on Friday was delayed again because of a hydrogen leak. According to international report, the postponement of Discovery‘s final launch was announced six hours before the scheduled time.

“We are not going to be able to launch shuttle Discovery on its final mission today,” said NASA commentator Allard Beutel.

Space Shuttle‘s launch is already running four days late because of technical and weather problems. Thursday’s launch was cancelled because heavy rain is hitting the area around the Kennedy Space Center in central Florida.

NASA has until Sunday to launch Space Shuttle Discovery to the International Space Station or face a delay until the beginning of December because of unacceptable solar angles.
