Shuttle Launch Delayed

This time, a fuel sensor is at fault.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA on Tuesday postponed the launch of space shuttle Discovery from May until at least July because of an all-too-familiar problem: a faulty fuel tank sensor.

A similar problem briefly delayed last summer's launch of Discovery on the first shuttle flight since the Columbia disaster in 2003.

NASA has to start real work on the followup systems for the Shuttle.
