Update: The launch of the Endeavour has been delayed until at least Sunday after NASA officials discovered technical problems with the shuttle.
Original report: The royal wedding is over. Moving on. Today is also the day NASA will launch its Endeavour into space, provided the weather cooperates. As of 9:30 this morning, NASA reported a 70 percent chance of favorable weather.
And just like locals donned dresses for the royal wedding viewing party, there’s a local connection to the shuttle launch, too.
