September 27, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

NASA is delaying next month's shuttle launch to the Hubble Space Telescope because of problems stemming from Hurricane Ike and replacement parts for the observatory.

Space shuttle Atlantis is now set to blast off late at night on Oct. 14 for the last visit to the orbiting telescope, officials said this week.

Liftoff had been scheduled for Oct. 10. Endeavour's space station mission has been delayed until Nov. 16.
