STS-133: logo (NASA) NASA officials said Wednesday that a tool dropped by a shuttle worker on the launch pad will have no impact on plans to launch the shuttle later this month. A feeler gauge, which consists of 13 pieces of metal, each the thickness of a piece of paper, held together with a screw, fell apart as a technician was using it while working on the shuttle Tuesday night. The tool did not damage the shuttle as it fell, although it did cause minor foam damage to the backside of the external tank that NASA said will not require repairs. Discovery remains on track to launch on February 24th on STS-133.
