Quoting propilot83 (Thread starter): I cant believe they pushed back the STS-133 launch of Space Shuttle Discovery from 09-16 to November 1, 2010. Now we gotta wait even longer, no shuttle launch next month I guess
Operational reasons and safety consideration trump all other reasons. Launching a space shuttle is a complex process and there is a tremendous attention to detail before a launch is approved and executed. There is no "go fever".
