CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - Work to prepare space shuttle Endeavour for its first flight in nearly five years was on schedule on Tuesday and meteorologists predicted clear skies for Wednesday's planned liftoff.

Endeavour's launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a construction mission to the International Space Station was scheduled for 6:36 p.m. EDT/2236 GMT. (08/08/07)

"The weather has been kind to us, so we've been fortunate to not get behind," Jeff Spaulding, a NASA launch manager, said at a news briefing on Tuesday.

Wow - good thing I didn't choose to wait around for it to happen when I went out there to watch it - in March!

I wish them the best of luck and hope all goes well.

I have to admit I do miss watching the lauanches since moving to TX from FL. Have seen many, including Apollo 11 and 13 and many shuttles.

Watched the launch on TV today and it went wonderfully. The best of luck to all on board!

Another amazing launch. How can something so complicated be made to look so easy.
