STS-127: logo (NASA) For the second day in a row poor weather at the Kennedy Space Center kept the space shuttle Endeavour from lifting off, this time pushing back the next launch attempt by two days. NASA had hoped to launch the shuttle at 6:51 pm EDT (2251 GMT) on mission STS-127, but as was the case Sunday thunderstorms came too close to the launch site and the shuttle landing facility to safely permit a launch. After scrubbing Monday's launch shuttle managers decided to defer the next launch attempt until Wednesday at 6:03 pm EDT (2203 GMT); the extra day will give crews a break and the weather forecast for Wednesday has a higher probability of acceptable weather.
