Not looking good on the weather.
New suits are pretty sweet.
And who really gets to operate the shuttle the two pilots inside or someone in a facility?
O-rings and space shuttles come to mind.
It ain't freezing outside.
The o-rings were a know issue, but a engineer backed down when he was questioned about it, because of a company culture of positivity. He was being painted as being negative, so when he was questioned he didn't have the balls to stand up, and he crawfished.
Or at least that is how I remember it, and the guy who told me the story was in the control room that day.
They also mentioned they are watching the weather at sea east of the launch pad. Waves and recovery if an abort during launch.
