NASA space shuttle Endeavour’s departure for Los Angeles has been delayed another day, officials at Kennedy Space Center said Monday.
A low-pressure front in the northern Gulf of Mexico is generating stormy weather along Endeavour’s flight path, grounding the orbiter until Wednesday.
Endeavour, mounted onto a specially modified 747 carrier aircraft, was originally set to be ferried to its final home in the California Science Center at sunrise Monday.
Managers are considering their options, NASA spokesman Mike Curie said. The planned touchdown at LAX was set for Thursday. A Wednesday departure would further squeeze the ferry flight's original three-day window.
