STS-108 patch The launch of the space shuttle Endeavour was scrubbed Tuesday because of poor weather conditions. NASA had planned to launch the shuttle on mission STS-108 at 5:45 pm EST (2245 GMT) but was forced to delay when clouds formed over the launch site. Shuttle managers were also concerned about the possibility of clouds and rain at the emergency landing site at the Kennedy Space Center. The launch has been rescheduled for Wednesday at 5:19 pm EST (2219 GMT).
