More NASA Tweet-up Thoughts

So the long and winding road for the launch of Discovery STS133 and the NASA Tweet-up continues.  Essentially, because they aren't certain why cracks formed in the external tank, NASA experts have decided to perform tests on the tank, which will delay the launch until at least February 3rd.  The social media Tweet-up around this event is still alive and many of the original 150 guests are expected to return for the potential launch in the very early morning hours that day.  I'll just say with a 1:30am launch on February 3rd, we're all very luck this isn't happening at the Alaska launch site.
