Weather Delays RSS Retract

Launch team members are closely monitoring weather conditions at NASA Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39A. There are no obvious indications of any damage at this time as thunderstorms pass through the area. Engineers will do a thorough evaluation of data after the storm passes to confirm there were no issues.

Teams now are targeting 10 - 10:30 p.m. EDT to begin moving the rotating service structure away from space shuttle Endeavour, weather permitting.

If no issues are found during the data review, launch still will be on track for tomorrow at 3:47 p.m.
