Team to relieve shuttle workers
Cape Canaveral, Fla. (AP) -
NASA officials, reorganizing
launch operations in the aftermath
of the Challenger disaster, are
creating a standby "scrub team" so
launch managers can get adequate
rest when shuttle countdowns are

fatigue that could affect (launch)

Top launch officials said they

in Kennedy Space Center overtime
- to be "rigidly observed" - as a
way of eliminating the long hours
worked by shuttle engineers,
technicians, and managers.
