That's what I was told today. My mission tomorrow canceled. Something to do with crack in wing attachment bolts. Does anyone know anything about this?

I was a trip when this came down. It is an attachment bolt issue. My crew chiefs had the inspection done in 1 hour. One call to TACC, then released to fly.
