No space shuttle launch yet
May 2, 2011, 4:59 am
NASA released a statement on Sunday stating that the space shuttle Endeavour’s final launch is off until at least the end of the week because technicians need to replace a switch box in the engine compartment. Fingers were being crossed Saturday night by the astronauts and their families who were still hoping for a possible launch attempt on Monday. Unfortunately, NASA gave up on that once it became clear extensive repair work would be needed to fix a faulty heater system aboard Endeavour. The same trouble previously prevented the shuttle from blasting off Friday.
