STS114 Low level fuel cutoff problem.

T minus 1:23 - there's a problem with the low level fuel cutoff sensors on Discovery. These measure any low fuel conditions which could cause catastrophic engine failure if the engines dry up on full throttle. The launch director just scrubbed the launch saying "this isn't something that's going to resolve itself today."
The problem means they're going to have to empty the external tank.

T minus 1:21. Launch director gave a "go for unstrap". The crew are being taken out of Discovery and the launch is officially scrubbed. :-(

Clever Amex scam.
