STS-39 commander Mike Coats is studying the area between Discovery and the external tank at Launch Pad 39A. Cracks were found on the hinges of the orbiter umbilical doors, which must close after the external tank separates from Discovery during ascent. The shuttle was rolled back to the Vehicle Assembly Building for repairs.

Nice but somewhat I hoped for a Buzz Aldrin photo who turns 88 years today!
