Shuttle Endeavour Scheduled Liftoff


NASA Space Shuttle EndeavourKennedy Space Center has begun the countdown clock to the shuttle Endeavour liftoff on November 14, 2008 at 7:55 PM. This is one a just a few manned, night launches. There will be 7 astronauts on board. It will be a 15 day mission to the International Space Station. If the mission is a success, if will double the number of astronauts the station will ba able to hold in the future.

If you have never had the opportunity to see one of these it is well worth it.  It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Living here in Melbourne Florida, I am able to stand in my driveway and see the breathtaking views of the liftoffs.

NASA is carefully watching the weather report as they are indicating that a front is in the forecast that could bring in inclement weather.  This mission has previously been scrubbed.
