Crew now suited up; clouds look threatening
Latest word from the Cape is the seven-member crew of the shuttle has suited up and should be headed for the launch pad about now. Despite a late start, the three-hour fueling process of the external tank should be complete. Prognosis for clouds is not looking great, now it's worse-than-even chances that clouds will preclude launch in just under four hours. And last thing -- with over 3000 accredited media drawing power from the Kennedy press area electrical grid - Space.com reports that there are supposedly brownouts going on now!
