    I watched the last 30 minutes or so before the scrub on NASA select today and
    was wondering about the rails that the "Red Team" were removing from the
    launch pad with about 16 minutes left in the T-9:00 hold.  I presume they
    were some sort of work hardware that someone forgot to remove from the pad?  
    It was frustrating waiting through the T-5:00 hold for the STA analysis of
    the RTLS and launchpad area weather conditions.  Hopefully things will clear
    out for tomorrows attempt.  Sunset views of the Shuttle stack and the sky are
    really pretty to watch, despite the scrub....  Tomorrow's attempt is supposed
    to be at 5:19 EST according to NASA select today just after the scrub was
    announced.
    
    Jim.
