STS-133 no earlier than Feb 3

Cracks found in the external tank of Discovery have caused a further launch delay of STS-133 to Feb 3, 2011 with a night launch at 1:30 a.m.

This pushes STS-134 to April 1.

Though the Authorization Act approved adding one more flight after STS-134 (tentatively planned for June), there is not yet an appropriations bill to fund it.
