NASA: Endeavour won’t Lift off Until Sunday

Oh no! NASA's space shuttle, Endeavour, won't be able to fly for at least another week. Poor technicians, they need to work even on Mother's Day.

According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the last flight of space shuttle – Edeavour – won’t lift off for at least another week. After managers scrubbed the launch last Friday, NASA technicians found the cause of the shuttle’s failed hydraulic power circuit at the aft compartment’s switchbox. Managers have to remove it, replace it with a new one, and do some testing that may take several days.

NASA’s target launch date for Endeavour is May 8, Sunday. They can’t launch the space shuttle on the following day, because it will have to depart with a Russian Soyuz spacecraft at the International Space Station on May 28. Moreover, a further delay until May 12 will affect the final shuttle launch of Atlantis, scheduled for June 28.

Now, NASA must work even on Mother’s Day.
