NASA says it may be able to launch another Space Shuttle on 26 September provided the necessary repairs are completed on the cracked flow liners in some of the pipes that feed liquid hydrogen into the main engines.

The problem is not as serious as at first thought because the Shuttle has been flying with the condition for some time. NASA will decide how to fix the problem by 31 July.

The 26 September mission would fly Atlantis to the International Space Station (ISS) on STS 112, followed by another ISS mission, STS 113/Endeavour, on 2 November.
