The launch of mission STS-119 and the space shuttle Discovery has been delayed one week due to the ship's replacement liquid hydrogen valve tests.

A new launch date of February 19th is simply a new target date and not official at this time. However, a Feb. 19th launch time would be 4:41 am EST. Discovery would then dock with the international space station less than two days later at just after 1 am EST on Feb. 21st.

A Feb. 10th launch assessment will discuss the readiness of the space transportation system.

Stay tune for more news soon...
