NOTE: The countdown for launch of Endeavour on mission STS-67 proceeded smoothly this morning with liftoff occurring at 1:38 a.m. EST, about 1 minute and 13 seconds later than the originally targeted liftoff time. The slight delay was due to engineers discussing a potential problem with a heater system on the flash evaporator system. A backup heater was utilized and the countdown proceeded.

Additional information regarding post launch inspections of the pad and solid rocket booster retrieval operations will be available later today.
