  By TechUniverse
NASA canceled Saturday's launch attempt of space shuttle Endeavour on a construction mission to the International Space Station to assess possible damage from nearby lightning strikes, officials said. Launch was reset for 7:13 p.m. EDT on Sunday. The shuttle is carrying a porch for Japan's Kibo laboratory that will be used to expose experiments to the open environment of space. NASA reported 11 lightning strikes less than a half-mile from the launch pad.
