Shuttle Launch Options

Rollback continues, launch options discussed, Orlando Sentinel

"After Ernesto passes, NASA cannot get back to the launch pad in time to lift off by Sept. 7. The next launch opportunity after the Russian flight that would meet lighting requirements is Oct. 26-27. In short, NASA will suffer at least a two-month launch delay unless one of two things happens: (1) The Russians agree to give Atlantis more opportunities by landing the Soyuz mission in the middle of the night or (2) NASA relaxes its daylight launch requirements."
