Clouds delay shuttle launch
Posted: Sun, Feb 7, 2010, 11:06 AM ET (1606 GMT)
STS-130: logo (NASA) Sunday morning's launch of the space shuttle Endeavour was postponed because of cloud cover, pushing the launch back to Monday. A layer of low, thick clouds developed overnight, violating weather criteria for a shuttle launch and thus postponing the scheduled 4:39 am EST (0939 GMT) launch. The launch is now scheduled for 4:14 am EST (0914 GMT) Monday, with a 60 percent chance of acceptable weather. The shuttle is carrying a new module, Tranquility, that is the last major US component to be added to the station. The shuttle launch delay will also push back at least a day Tuesday's scheduled launch of an Atlas 5 from Cape Canaveral carrying a NASA solar observatory.
