Tests today indicate that repairs to the space shuttle Endeavour’s external fuel tanks were successful.  Endeavour’s external fuel tank was loaded with a half-million gallons of liquid hydrogen and oxygen and no leaks were detected by the launch team.  On July 11th, Endeavour’s mission to deliver a new section to the International Space Station is scheduled to begin.
