He had earlier delayed the U.S. space agency launch Discovery of the fifth of November to mid-December due to leakage of hydrogen in the external tank during filling.
After the dump about two million liters of liquid hydrogen and oxygen at a temperature very low, were discovered a long crack in the foam, and some cracks in the metal cover.
Then the agency decided to postpone the launch again to the third of February, for all Alvhsos necessary to show the cause of these cracks in the metal casing that surrounds the tank.
Agency and then returned and announced that it plans to launch Discovery on February 24 after found a solution to a technical problem was Pthqqat on the shuttle's external tank.

The shuttle also will carry a platform for Foreign Affairs of the International Space Station "Express Logistics 4", designed for extra storage, too.
