The shuttle was delayed again by weather yesterday.  NASA has decided to hold-off on another launch attempt until tomorrow.  Originally, a delay past today would have pushed the launch back until July 26th.  But, NASA has decided to re-arrange the mission time-line, deferring some the shuttle crew’s off-duty time and other duties until after Endeavour undocks from the International Space Station.  By re-arranging the time-line, NASA ensures that Endeavour is out of the way before the  Russian Progress arrives at the ISS.
