FLORIDA (BNS): NASA has rescheduled the target launch dates of its last two space flights for November 2010.

The International Space Station scientists will upgrade a magnet present in the particle physics experiment module of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) program.

Space shuttle Endeavour's STS-134 mission, which had been scheduled to lift off July 29, is now delayed till mid- November 2010 due to the AMS refit program, the US space agency said in a news release.

AMS is designed to help study the formation of the universe and search for evidence of dark matter and antimatter by measuring cosmic rays.

NASA is preparing itself for its upcoming STS-132 mission. During the 12-day mission, Atlantis and crew will deliver an Integrated Cargo Carrier and a Russian-built Mini Research Module to the International Space Station.

NASA next lift off for International Space Station is scheduled on May 14, 2010.
