Atlantis on the pad

The Space Shuttle Atlantis is getting ready for launch at about 11:50 EDT following some delays. Currently, they have cleared a problem with fuel cell 1 but there is a problem with a fuel cut-off sensor. NASA TV have a webcast of the launch build-up for those of us that can't pick it up via satellite. You can also follow what is happening in NASA's live Launch Blog. Seeing the Shuttle on launch pad 39-B is an amazing sight.

Hopefully in a few days, the International Space Station will have a new solar array. Good luck Atlantis.
