NASA's Space Shuttle Mission Postponed 24 Hours
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The launch of space shuttle Endeavour on mission STS-118 has been postponed 24 hours to allow the shuttle processing team additional time to complete routine work before liftoff. The launch now is targeted for Wednesday, Aug. 8, at 6:36 p.m. EDT from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The additional day will provide time to complete the processing and allow the countdown to begin at 8 p.m. Sunday. As originally planned, the STS-118 crew will arrive at Kennedy at 5 p.m. Friday. NASA Television will air live coverage of the arrival. On launch day, live coverage starts at 8:30 a.m.
