Space Shuttle Endeavor Launch Time

Early morning today, Sunday, NASA fueled the shuttle Endeavour.

The space shuttle Endeavour is ready on the launch pad 39A.

Shuttle Endeavour Launch Time Scrubbed, Space Shuttle Endeavour is one of three currently operational orbiters in the Space Shuttle fleet of NASA, the space agency of the United States. Before being decommissioned NASA expects to use Endeavour for the STS-130 and STS-134 missions. Shuttle Endeavour launch time was scrubbed in the last moments due to unfavorable weather. NASA launch director Mike Leinbach called an official scrub at 4:30 a.m. EST Sunday.

NASA shuttle launch and mission managers would analyze forecast conditions for a Monday or Tuesday pre-dawn launch attempt. If Endeavour launches Monday morning, the launch time would be 4:14 a.m. Eastern Time. NASA was in violation of safety rules for Sunday morning, due to clouds that were too low and too thick over the launch and emergency landing sites at the Kennedy Space Center. Endeavour is set to ferry the last of the heavy living-quarter and interior space elements to the International Space Station.

Bohooo.. Hate it. I was even excited. Smiley Last November, NASA was successful in launching the Atlantis Spacecraft.

Atlantis Space Shuttle Launch Successful

Another great event yesterday, November 16 as the Atlantis Space Shuttle had a successful launch from Pad 39A Smileys at the Kennedy Space Center at exactly 2:28 PM Eastern Time.

Atlantis carried six crew on an eleven day mission, designated STS 129, which they carry equipment parts for the International Space Station. Those parts include two spare gyroscopes, two nitrogen tank assemblies, two pump modules, an ammonia tank assembly and a spare latching end effector for the station’s robotic arm to the International Space Station. Atlantis will be back two days after they’ve launched.
