Posted: Fri, Nov 22, 2002, 12:03 AM ET (0503 GMT)
STS-113 pach (NASA) NASA announced Thursday night that the space shuttle Endeavour will lift off at 8:15 pm EST Friday night (0115 GMT) on the STS-113 mission to the International Space Station. The official launch time of 8:15:30 pm EST is in the middle of a 10-minute launch window. There have been no technical problems reported with the shuttle after managers decided Wednesday night to fly the shuttle despite minor damage to its robot arm. Weather in Florida is expected to cooperate, with an 80 percent chance of acceptable launch weather Friday evening, but weather conditions are currently forecast to be poor at the two abort landing sites in Spain. There must be good weather at at least one site for the launch to take place.
