Endeavour shuttle launch scrubbed due to weather

UPDATE: CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — There won’t be a space shuttle launch today thanks to a cloud cover that moved in and wouldn’t go away. NASA says it will try again tomorrow to send Endeavour aloft with the last big parts of the international space station.


The US shuttle Endeavour is preparing to lift off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The pre-dawn launch on Sunday will be the last time the orbiter climbs into dark skies.

Just five shuttle flights remain before the re-useable fleet is retired at the end of the year.

The mission to the International Space Station (ISS) will deliver a connecting unit and a large bay window that will be used as a robotic control room.
