Houston We Have a Problem

After a little time off NASA got back into the swing of problems:

NASA technicians are scratching their heads over a fuel tank glitch that forced mission planners to postpone the launch of space shuttle Discovery on Wednesday.

The glitch, which causes a sensor to report the tank as empty rather than full, popped up just two and a half hours before Discovery and its crew of seven were to blast into space. Technicians had observed a similar problem on a different tank in the past but were not able to determine the cause.

Today I talked about how NASA needs to go back to the moon or create some Public Relations event that would draw attentions to the positives of Space Exploration.
