LAUNCH HAS BEEN ABORTED
9:27 p.m. - T-9 minutes and counting. The Ground Launch Sequencer (GLS) is now controlling the final phase of the countdown to Discovery's launch. The GLS will monitor approximately 1,000 different measurements to ensure they stay within their predetermined limits.
9:24 p.m. - The countdown clock will resume in about two minutes and proceed down to the T-5 minute mark, where it will hold, with the hope that the weather violation will resolve in time.
9:22 p.m. Launch Director Mike Leinbach has completed his final launch poll. He wished Commander Polansky and the crew "good luck and Godspeed," with the hope that weather will improve and allow a launch tonight.
