STS-113 pach (NASA) NASA restarted the countdown late Tuesday night for the launch of the shuttle Endeavour, but shuttle managers have yet to make a final decision regarding a Friday night launch attempt. The countdown restarted Tuesday night in order for the shuttle to be ready for a launch between 7 and 11 pm EST Friday (0000 and 0400 GMT Saturday) on STS-113. A meeting is planned for Wednesday evening to go over the status of the shuttle's robot arm, damaged in a pad accident last week, and a final decision on plans for the launch should be announced at the conclusion of the meeting. Officials are weighing whether the arm can fly as-is, or should be repaired or removed on the pad. The latter options would require delaying the launch until early December. There is an 80 percent chance of acceptable weather for a Friday night launch attempt.
