No launch for space shuttle Endeavour Monday

CAPE CANAVERAL (AP): Space shuttle Endeavour's launch is off until probably the end of the week.

NASA officials said Sunday there was no way Endeavour could blast off Monday on its final voyage.

A new launch date was not set. But officials said it appeared that the work needed to repair a faulty heater system in the shuttle would push the launch to the end of the week, at best.
Endeavour’s commander, Mark Kelly, is married to US Rep Gabrielle Giffords, who was severely wounded in a shooting attack.

She arrived at Kennedy Space Center last week in hopes of seeing her husband rocket into orbit. But Friday’s launch attempt was called off because of the heater trouble.

A NASA spokesman said technicians and engineers will replace a switchbox in Endeavour's engine compartment.
