STS-98 countdown proceeds smoothly

STS-98 mission patch The countdown towards Wednesday evening's launch of the shuttle Atlantis continues with weather at emergency landing sites the only major concern. The shuttle is scheduled to lift off on mission STS-98 at 6:11 pm EST (2311 GMT) to deliver the Destiny laboratory module to the International Space Station. There are no technical issues that could stop the countdown and there is an 90 percent forecast of acceptable launch weather at the Kennedy Space Center. The only concern is with uncertain weather at transatlantic abort landing sites in Spain and Morocco: at least one of the three sites must have acceptable weather to permit a launch. If the launch is delayed a day, weather should improve at those sites and remain good at KSC.
