Space Shuttle Scheduled to Launch Today

MSNBC reports:

A cold front is on its way to Florida but NASA officials say there’s about a 70 percent chance the weather will cooperate enough to go ahead with the 7:55 p.m. EST launch. About a fourth of all shuttle missions start at night.

Endeavour and its seven-person crew will spend 15 days in orbit, including Thanksgiving. Its payload bay is filled with thousands of pounds of home remodeling supplies for the space station. That will allow NASA to double the size of the space station’s crew by June.
