STS-122 The space shuttle Atlantis will not launch until the new year. A fuel tank glitch forced mission controllers to delay the launch. And, fuel sensors weren't the only problem. The shuttle was also attacked by a giant spider. Well, at least that's how it looked on NASA's camera, walking right over a live picture of the launch pad. Add "exterminator" to the list of preflight checks for January's launch. False readings from the sensor system forced a postponement of the launch of Atlantis on mission STS-122. The space agency has rescheduled the launch for Jan. 2, 2008, at 5:41 a.m. EST from NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
