NASA Calls Off Space Shuttle Launch
NPR – NASA has called off Friday’s launch of space shuttle Endeavour because of a heater failure.
Commander Mark Kelly and his crew were on their way to the launch pad, when NASA halted the countdown. The astronauts’ van did a U-turn, and returned the astronauts to crew quarters.
Kelly is married to wounded congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. She is already in Cape Canaveral. President Barack Obama planned to watch the launch but had not yet arrived.
