The launch of the space shuttle Discovery on its final scheduled mission has been delayed for at least 24 hours until Tuesday because of a leak in a pressurization system, NASA said.
"We have developed two leaks on the pressurization system on the maneuvering system of Discovery on the right side," Kennedy Space Center spokesman Allard Beutel told AFP.
Fixing the shuttle and getting it ready for take-off would take until at least Tuesday, the spokesman added.
