NASA will try again. Although they still aren't sure what caused the fuel sensor anomaly, the space shuttle Discovery is again scheduled for launch this morning. And with that comes a large, 40-nautical-mile-radius temporary flight restriction area (TFR) with a 30-nm interior "no-fly" zone.
The TFR, which is centered on the MLB VOR/DME 004-degree radial at 30.6 miles, extends up to Flight Level 180, goes into effect at 1:33 a.m. local time July 26 and extends through 1:44 p.m. If the shuttle doesn't launch today, another notam is in place for a Wednesday launch. For more information, see AOPA Online for the full text of the notams and graphics. Also check AOPA's Real-Time Flight Planner for up-to-date graphics and information.
