Space shuttle Endeavour’s move from NASA Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Pad 39B to Launch Pad 39A now is targeted to begin at 2 a.m. Sunday, May 31. The 2-hour delay will allow engineers and technicians to complete move preparations following delays due to inclement weather at Kennedy. The STS-125 ferry flight departure is now scheduled for no earlier than Monday morning. There will be a weather briefing at 2 p.m. EDT (11 a.m. PDT) Sunday. Flight managers are looking at various options for the best route to the Kennedy Space Center. Weather remains very dynamic. The mate of Atlantis to the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft is scheduled for Saturday evening.
