STS-127 Postponed to July
Another hydrogen leak caused NASA to scrub the launch of Endeavour until July 11.
So the STS-127 crew will be returning to Houston to continue training and Koichi Wakata will have another month to enjoy the view from orbit and wait for his ride home.
If the folks gathered to watch the shuttle launch stick around a few days, they will hopefully get to see an Atlas 5 send LRO on its way to the Moon--assuming the weather cooperates.
Going to space is never easy, but it is definitely worth the effort!
