STS-131: logo (NASA) Processing delays caused by cold weather in Florida have forced NASA to postpone the next shuttle mission to early April, the agency announced Tuesday. NASA had planned to launch STS-131 on March 18, but have not been able to transfer the shuttle Endeavour to the Vehicle Assembly Building because temperatures at the Kennedy Space Center are below limits for transporting the orbiter. NASA is now planning to launch the shuttle on April 5 in order to avoid conflicts with a Soyuz mission to the ISS at the end of March.
