Progress Docking Problem Delays Shuttle Launch
NASA has decided to delay the launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavour 24 hours because the recently launched unmanned Progress cargo ship has failed to dock correctly with the International Space Station. Although it is attached, the Progress doesn't have a "hard lock" with the station, so engineers will work on the problem today. Endeavour is now scheduled to launch Saturday morning at 0041 GMT (7:41pm EST Friday). The shuttle will carry the crew of Expedition 4 to the ISS, as well as 6,000 US flags which will later be delivered to the victims of the September 11th tragedy.
