Poor STS-127 Is Trying Again

BTW, this is not the record for scrubs. They've scrubbed 5 times (leak, leak, lightning, weather, weather). Two earlier missions both had 6.

Tanking is complete, and the count is in the scheduled T-2 hour hold. Weather has a 60 per cent chance of allowing launch, but KSC is currently under a lightning watch. Barring further storms, this should expire at 2000 UTC. Launch is scheduled for 2203.
