Space shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to launch Nov. 14 at 7:55 p.m. EST after NASA officials conducted an exhaustive review of the shuttle, its payload and the International Space Station. The officials met Thursday at Kennedy Space Center during the Flight Readiness Review, a standard session that clears the way for the launch of a shuttle mission.

“We’re in very good shape to go fly,” said John Shannon, manager of the Space Shuttle Program.
