Countdown to STS-100 launch continues smoothly
Posted: Thu, Apr 19, 2001, 10:56 AM ET (1456 GMT)
STS-100 patch The countdown to Thursday afternoon's launch of the space shuttle Endeavour continues with few problems reported. Launch of Endeavour on mission STS-100 is scheduled for 2:41 pm EDT (1841 GMT), with little sign that technical or weather problems will stop the launch. Forecasters are still predicting a 90 percent chance of acceptable weather for the afternoon launch, and the only technical problem of note, a faulty electronics box in the shuttle cockpit, was replaced early Wednesday. If the shuttle does launch on time Thursday it will dock with the International Space Station Saturday morning, remaining there a week to install a Canadian-built robot arm on the station and transferring supplies to the station carried aboard an Italian-built cargo module.
