On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, workers begin to remove the vent line attached to the ground umbilical carrier plate (GUCP) on the bright-orange external fuel tank. A hydrogen gas leak at that location during tanking for space shuttle Discovery's STS-133 mission to the International Space Station caused the launch attempt to be scrubbed Nov. 5.

On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the tip-top of the bright-orange external fuel tank is where workers will prepare to begin removing the quick disconnect from the ground umbilical carrier plate (GUCP). A hydrogen gas leak at that location during tanking for space shuttle Discovery's STS-133 mission to the International Space Station caused the launch attempt to be scrubbed Nov. 5.

Technician prepare space shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank for a tanking test on Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. During the test, engineers will monitor what happens to 21-foot long, U-shaped aluminum brackets, called stringers, located at the intertank, as well as the newly replaced ground umbilical carrier plate, during the loading of cryogenic propellants.

A backscatter device is being used to examine space shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank on Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The device bounces radiation off the tank, allowing technicians to see under the tank's foam insulation. The foam cracked during initial loading operations for Discovery's STS-133 launch attempt on Nov. 5, and technicians later identified two cracked stringers, which are the composite aluminum ribs located vertically on the tank's intertank...

On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, technicians remove a few items from space shuttle Discovery's middeck payload, including food, prior to a planned tanking test. During the test, engineers will monitor what happens to 21-foot long, U-shaped aluminum brackets, called stringers, located at the intertank, as well as the newly replaced ground umbilical carrier plate, during the loading of cryogenic propellants.

On Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the cracks on space shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank have been repaired. The foam cracked during initial loading operations for Discovery's STS-133 mission to the International Space Station on Nov. 5. The cracks were on two of the 108 stringers, which are the composite aluminum ribs located vertically on the intertank area. Image credit: NASA/Cory Huston Nov. 30, 2010
