NASA Says No Fourth Spacewalk Needed

Mission control radioed the Discovery crew today with news that they will not need to make a fourth spacewalk to fix a thermal blanket near the Commander’s left window. Mission Control and the crew agreed that it was “good news.”

The Mission Management Team, which made the decision based on extensive analysis, is still meeting. More details about the decision will be discussed at a news conference at 3 p.m. EDT today.
