STS-127 Shuttle Endeavour Launch Date Could be Pushed Back

Weather Could Delay Endeavour Launch, Aviation Week

"The same Florida weather than forced the space shuttle Atlantis to land in California after its successful mission to the Hubble Space Telescope may also delay launch of the next shuttle mission to the International Space Station."

"The shuttle Endeavour is set to lift off June 13 on STS-127 with the final piece of Japan's Kibo laboratory module, but stormy weather at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) threatens a delay in moving Endeavour from Launch Pad 39B - where it stood ready as a rescue craft during the Hubble mission - to Launch Pad 39A that would delay launch on a day-for-day basis."

Editor's note: The launch could slip as far as mid-July.
