Launch Scrubbed

Today’s launch of Space Shuttle Discovery has been postponed for 24 hours because of weather. The new launch time will be at 3:26 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Thunderstorms and electrically-charged anvil clouds near the launch pad forced Nasa officials to scrub the lift-off.

Much is at stake for the mission; some observers believe the shuttle has still to prove its safety since the loss of the Columbia ship and its crew in 2003.
