As the five astronauts began emerging from the cockpit where they had lain on their backs for More than three hours engineers worked to determine the extent of the problem with the auxiliary Power unit. The scrub was a disappointment to the hundreds of astronomers who had gathered at the Kennedy space Center to watch the launch of discovery and the Telescope that it carries in its cargo Bay.
