Endeavour is scheduled to launch on mission STS-108 at 7:41 pm EST Thursday (0041 GMT Friday) from pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center. Latest weather forecasts call for a 60 percent chance of acceptable weather conditions at the time of launch.

Two members of the STS-108 crew, Linda Godwin and Daniel Tani, will perform an EVA while Endeavour is docked to the station to do several miscellaneous tasks. The 10 day, 19 hour mission will end with a landing at the Kennedy Space Center on the afternoon of December 10.
