STS-127 Launch: SCRUBBED!

About an hour away from the end of fuel tanking, a hydrogen leak at the umbilical was detected again. The launch team is draining the cryogenic propellants from the shuttle's external fuel tank and by tomorrow evening work should commence on fixing the ground umbilical carrier plate.

The next attempt at launching space shuttle Endeavour will be on July 11 at 7:39 p.m. EDT.

So why doesn't this tried & true 30 year old component work anymore?
