ENDEAVOUR WILL STAY IN SPACE AN EXTRA TWO DAYS
NASA announced yesterday that Space Shuttle mission STS-100 will be delayed another two days because of computer problems that have plagued the International Space Station this week. It was originally feared that the delays would push back Dennis Tito's Soyuz flight as well, but NASA has said that it will have the repairs completed before the Soyuz docks early next week. Astronauts on board the station still have to complete a test of the newly-installed Canadarm2, where it passes its own packing crate back to Endeavour.
