News In Brief

Space shuttle launching rescheduled for today

The first launching of the space shuttle Discovery was postponed for the third time Tuesday night, this time apparently by a problem in the electronic system that jettisons the ship's booster rockets and fuel tank when they're empty.

Liftoff was rescheduled for 8:35 a.m. today, 24 hours late.
