On for Launch!
The Space Shuttle will try again tonight!! Thunderstorms were too close last night for launch and Saturdays was cancelled as well. The Endeavor will be carrying seven astronauts and a key component for Japan's Kibo science laboratory, is to head to the International Space Station for a 16-day mission. Five spacewalks are planned for the crew after the shuttle docks. The Kibo science lab, also called the Japanese Experiment Module, is Japan's first human space facility, and has been more than 20 years in the making.
