CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - The space shuttle Endeavour's launch
has been pushed back until July at the earliest.
It was to have taken off early this morning, but a potentially
dangerous hydrogen gas leak forced NASA to postpone the launch. The
leak occurred in the same place as one detected Saturday.
NASA was already running three hours behind because of
thunderstorms that delayed fueling Tuesday night. The leak did not
appear until early Wednesday.
NASA bumped an unmanned moon launch to give Endeavour one last
chance of launching before a thermal blackout period kicks in.
