    They've probably put 10x the time into their powerpoint presentations than into actually getting the stupid thing out.

    I can only imagine just how fun it must be to show up to work right now.

    I think I understand in general what might be involved, But 6 MONTHS!!!:eek: I would think everyone that could be involved with the process would immediately have some idea of who they are and what will be required of them and what kind of response to gear up for.

    I can understand the time delay. With all of the process requirements that need to be met, inspections and most likely, the time delay in getting new parts, I can see it taking that long.

    Why can't they just cut the thing in half with a small hack saw blade?

    Because the acronym SHSB is already being used for something else.
    5 of the 6 months are ear marked for coming up with acronyms for the lost part, the tool and the procedure. The main sticking point is coming up with an acronym for the committee to determine the acronym.

    The latest is that they're ordering the parts from China with ground shipping so the shuttle probably won't go up until next march.
