The report was of a potential 'vibration' issue. I think the word they should have used was shock. The rocket vibrates quite a bit on the way up. This sounds like they smacked the payload carrier against something while they were mating it to the booster potentially knocking something out of alignment.Man, hopefully no damage was done.
Yes, this is exciting stuff. I hope everything goes smoothly. But we have to remember it didn’t for Hubble and that served us very well.After many delays and mishaps, the James Webb Space Telescope finally launched this morning! Hopefully the next few weeks go smoothly!
