Weather Outlook for Wednesday's Launch: 60 Percent "Go"

  • At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Endeavour is being prepped for a new opportunity to launch on its STS-127 mission. Liftoff is scheduled for Wednesday at 6:03 p.m. EDT.

    With a 60 percent chance of favorable weather, Wednesday's launch outlook is an improvement over the previous two attempts. Tries on Sunday and Monday both were thwarted when bad weather approached the launch area, violating stringent launch safety rules.

    The Mission Management Team will meet Wednesday at 8 a.m. to give a "go" for fueling of Endeavour's external fuel tank. With the managers' approval, fueling operations will begin at 8:30 a.m.
