The latest word from NASA is postponement of the Shuttle launch scheduled for 1:32am on February 27th.
While personally, this is somewhat of a disappointment, I cannot help but think that this is the best course. There are issues involving the hydrogen fuel valves and to me, that sounds like a "major malfunction" in the system. The safety of the crew and the welfare of their families should come first.
We do not need another Challenger disaster.
So I guess I can arrive in Orlando late Thursday night and proceed directly to my hotel. In some ways, this is a relief.
There is no word at this time as to when the launch will be rescheduled.
