The space shuttle Endeavour is ready to launch on Saturday on its mission to the International Space Station.  This will be the third attempted launch to deliver the Japanese Kibo laboratory to the ISS.  While the shuttle may be ready, the weather may not be as cooperative.  The Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, where the launch will take place on Saturday, currently has a forecasted 60% chance of thunderstorms for launch time.
