    NASA is gearing up to resume shuttle flights this spring with a
    three-spacewalk mission to repair the international space station's
    stabilization system, to deliver critical supplies and equipment and
    to prove the design defects that contributed to the Columbia disaster
    have been corrected. This 10-part, 11,600-word report is focused on details
    about Discovery's mission and safety upgrades to improve ascent damage
    detection and potential repair options.

    haven't I also read that NASA is not sending shuttle to HST
    for maintenance update because that is not safe.  it is safe
    to repair ISS but not safe to repair HST.  what am I not
    understanding?
