    sorry this is sort of off topic.
    Regarding the fact that they tried 3 days in a row, I have been wondering
    how many refuelings the external tank can handle, it must be a huge stress
    on it both mechanically and thermally each time it is filled and emptied,
    there must be a limit to the number of cycles it can handle. ??
