Shuttle to stay in space a day longer

This Saturdays Adelaide Advertiser had a photo spread of "Andy's Adventures in Space". You would think he was the only Astronaut aboard they way they carry one, even if he is South Australian.

Andy's handling of the robot camera helped with the decision that the shuttles heat tiles were okay, but revealed an area where the gap-filler was protruding past the heat tiles. This might cause heating problems of re-entry, so mission control is considering an extra spacewalk to try and fix the problem. Discovery will stay up an extra day.
