This is the latest on the TSS I have heard, this was in a press release 
at about 8:00 EST this morning...

   NASA is going ahead with the countdown for the launch of the space
shuttle Atlantis scheduled for tomorrow morning. There is an 80 percent
chance the launch could be scrubbed because of poor weather.

   Meanwhile, that satellite that broke free of its tether during the
last shuttle mission plunged into the Earth's atmosphere last night.
Scientists say it came down somewhere between Africa and Asia.

I added that extra little bit about the shuttle because I know we are all 
waiting for this one to go up to have something else to look at.. :)
