NASA Sets Feb. 7 Launch Date For Endeavour

NASA set Feb. 7 as the firm launch date for shuttle Endeavour and a mission to the International Space Station at the conclusion of an executive-level flight readiness review here at Kennedy Space Center.

Endeavour and six astronauts now are officially slated to blast off from launch pad 39A at 4:39 a.m., the middle of a 10-minute opportunity to put the shuttle on course for a ground-up rendezvous with the station.

A NASA news conference is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. You can watch here in The Flame Trench. Click the NASA TV box on the right side of the page to launch our NASA TV viewer and live coverage.

Why won't this paper report the fact that Obama is going to cut out the Ares program and basically give NASA the shaft ? This guy is the worst president in my lifetime. He can spit out billions of dollars on these crap programs but he can't give a dime to NASA. Our Space Program only represents % 0.58 of the entire GNP for God's sake !

you won't even post my comments about how you are ignoring the big fat elephant in the room by the name of Obama and the death of Constellation.

You guys are so simple minded - you are blaming the wrong guy, can't you see that your George W stuffed the worlds economies by letting the banks run wild with no controls for the last 7 years? When will you-all wake up?
