NASA's Final Space Shuttle Launch Delayed AGAIN

Uh-oh!

NASA's final space shuttle launch has been delayed for a second time.

The shuttle Endeavor was originally scheduled for liftoff on Friday and then was delayed until Monday due to a power unit failure.

An official date has not been set, as mission managers determine how long it will take to make the repairs, but NASA spokesman says:

"We're looking more toward the end of the week, maybe next weekend. We won't know until tomorrow when our next launch opportunity is."

So unfortunate that such a momentous occasion continues to be delayed. We're keeping our fingers crossed that NASA can pinpoint the problem and get the shuttle ready for liftoff for its final voyage.
