SUMMARY: It looks like NASA is still a long way from getting the space shuttles ready to fly again, according to the interim report released today by the Return to Flight task group. Although NASA is addressing all 29 issues suggested by the recommendations of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, the progress is reported as "uneven". So far, none of the tasks have been completed. NASA is currently targeting September 12 for the date of the first shuttle launch after the Columbia disaster, but many experts think that date could be pushed back even further.

I know NASA want fly again with shuttle but I think it will be not at september, maybe next year or never...... cause NASA really is weak if he was felt and must stand up.

It's not necessarily a delay, assuming NASA can complete all of the changes specified in the CAIB report.
