The Friday launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour has been canceled, due to a technical problem.

NASA has decided that Space Shuttle Enveavour will not be launched earlier than May 8th. The specific date and time will be determined by progress of repairs to the two malfunctioning heaters for the hydraulics system, and any conflicts with other, already scheduled rocket launches. Michael

Well, no big surprice, safety, safety
and again SAFETY, are the 3(?) most important things.

The safety of six astronouts, are very, very important and probably makes those
space endevours also very expensive.

Biggest problems are, weather...............and to cover all eventuallies, makes this
(almost) impossible but not a no go.

Hope that this mission, results in even better pictures and understanding of the
1001(^2) questions, 'we', defenatly want to know!


Interesting facts.


After Endeavour's mission, NASA has only one more shuttle mission planned. The shuttle Atlantis is slated to lift off June 28 for one last trip to the International Space Station.

The Allen Array is ending and the shuttle program is being retired because ET is here. Both SETI and NASA know it.

The script of Revelation (which is just that- a script and nothing magical) calls for ET to play Satan, aka the second beast. He will restore the power of the first beast, who will suddenly recover from a head wound (alternatively, from a scandal as the head of some organization). People will naturally think it's a miracle and obey both of the beasts.

It's hard to say all of this when you are a scientist.

But that's the plan, and it's playing out now as a matter of fact...

The shuttle Atlantis, which is being prepared for the 30-year-old shuttle program’s 135th and final flight this summer, will stay in Florida, roosting at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center.

Endeavour, which is now at the launch pad for its final liftoff on April 29, is promised to the California Science Center in Los Angeles.

And Discovery, which completed its final mission last month, will go to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in northern Virginia.

The Smithsonian also will transfer the shuttle prototype Enterprise to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City.
