NASA pulling a Shuttle engine over defective seals.
SPACE SHUTTLE MANAGERS have decided to replace one of the engines on the Space Shuttle Atlantis, scheduled to visit the International Space Station next month, out of concern faulty tip seals were installed in its fuel pump. Managers yesterday slipped the target launch date from April 13 to April 17 as a result. It will take crews about three days to install an engine from the Shuttle Discovery, next up in the launch lineup, in Atlantis, according to Kennedy Space Center.
