Editor's note: NASA PAO statement regarding STS-122 preparations:
"The post Mission Management Team meeting news conference has been pushed back to no earlier than 7:30 p.m. EST.
Reporters have been inquiring about a report from NASAspaceflight.com that stated: 'An 8 inch crack has been observed on one of the LOX Feedline brackets. Photographs are being taken at the pad, with evaluations to take place over the coming hours.'
It is not a crack. During a routine pad inspection, teams identified scuff marks on the LOX Feedline brackets. These scuff marks are within the allowable limits and there no issues."
