STS-124

May 31st is the next targeted launch date for space shuttle Discovery's STS-124 mission. We were supposed to launch on May 25th, but due to weather issues delaying the delivery of the External Tank and to prevent having employees to work through Memorial Day weekend. Last week the External Tank was delivered and it is currently in the Vehicle Assembly Building to be mated with the Solid Rocket Boosters.

What's the tensile strength of the cables supporting the tank?
