Shuttle Discovery remained anchored on the launch pad Friday after a gaseous hydrogen leak was detected in the umbilical between the ground connector and spacecraft. This collection of photographs was taken a few hours after officials postponed the ship's final voyage until the next window of opportunity to reach the International Space Station opens on November 30.
