Space Shuttle Launch in Two Hours

Space Shuttle flight STS-118 is getting ready for launch. Everything's been smooth thus far; they're just now working on closing the hatch. This mission will deliver another truss segment to the ISS, perform some inflight science experiments, and deliver provisions and cargo. It also has a teacher, Barbara Morgan, aboard as Mission Specialist 2. She was the original understudy for Christa McAuliff. Godspeed!

Estimated Time of Launch: 3:36 pm Pacific

Watch online via NASA-TV.
