Shuttle Launch Delayed

NASA has announced it will delay the launch of the space shuttle Endeavour from its June 13 date. During fueling on Saturday, ground crews discovered a gaseous hydrogen leak. While NASA is working to fix the problem, the earliest date for the launch, June 17, is already scheduled with the launch of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which also causes a conflict with the Air Force Eastern Range which would provide telemetry and tracking for both launches. The goal remains to launch Endeavour in June, although any June launch would have to take place prior to June 20.
