    The shuttle got hammered by golf ball sized hail and will not be launching 
    as originally scheduled.
    
    "We no not believe we can make March launch window for Atlantis. We are 
    looking at a late April launch - following Soyuz departure from ISS on 20 
    April". That window would extend through the end of May when beta angles 
    become an issue that would prevent a launch."

    Maybe they will miss the FengYun 1C debris that they would have encountered 
    otherwise.
