Space shuttle Atlantis' external tank and solid rocket boosters will be the subject of a tanking test with the Time Domain Reflectometry, or TDR, test equipment whose wiring is being calibrated Dec. 14. The shuttle's planned launches on Dec. 6 and Dec. 9 were postponed because of false readings from the part of the ECO system that monitors the liquid hydrogen section of the tank. The liftoff date from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Florida, is now targeted for Jan. 10, depending on the resolution of the problem in the fuel sensor system. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
