NASA engineers will meet again to examine the latest weather forecasts on Thursday before the rotating service structure is pushed away from the shuttle, in the final major movement on the launch pad before the spacecraft launches.
There may be storm disturbance around the time the rotating service structure is set to be rolled back on Sunady, but other than that, there seems to be nothing standing in the way of a successful final launch for Endeavour.
The space shuttle Endeavour sat on Launch Pad 39A as a storm passed prior to the rollback of the Rotating Service Structure, Thursday, April 28, 2011, at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.
The rotating service structure at the shuttle's Launch Pad 39A was rolled out late Friday, paving the way for Endeavour's external fuel tank to be filled starting at 10:14 am (1414 GMT) Saturday, NASA said.
The rotating service structure, which will surround the spacecraft and serve as a protective barrier from the storm, will be put around Atlantis about 30 minutes later.
