NASA announced on Friday that they’re very close to deciding how they’ll fix the tiny cracks discovered in fuel lines of the entire space shuttle fleet. If the plan is approved, workers could begin welding the cracks as early as next week.

If all goes well, the first shuttle could launch as early as September 26.
