Shuttle Launch Director Mike Leinbach informs the STS-130 crew that a low-cloud ceiling over NASA’s Kennedy Space Center has forced postponement of Sunday’s scheduled launch of space shuttle Endeavour to the International Space Station. Commander George Zamka, pilot Terry Virts, and Mission Specialists Nicholas Patrick, Bob Behnken, Steve Robinson and Kay Hire will try again to start their STS-130 mission early Monday morning, with launch scheduled at 4:14 a.m. Eastern.

CUT 1 (:23) -- "We tried really, really hard to work the weather; it was just too dynamic.  We got feeling good, at that point, and then it filled back in on us, and we were just not comfortable with launching a space shuttle tonight; so, we’re going to go into a 24 hour scrub.  We thank you for the effort you put in tonight, and we’ll see you back tomorrow, and we hope the weather
is little bit better."
