Atlantis is Rolling Back to the VAB

After the External Tank was damaged by hail Monday night, NASA has decided to roll Atlantis back into the VAB. The rollback should be this weekend.

They are definitely not launching in March. Wayne Hale, shuttle manager, said "It will be about a month before we can talk about heading back to the launch posture."

The next available launch window is in April.

NASA plans to have 4-5 shuttle launches this year.
