Endeavour en-route to pad 39A
The cold temperatures are not unusual at the Florida cape in January, and although the early morning trip began at a sub-zero 4:13am, the hardware was not affected. Launches are not permitted when the weather drops below 2 Celcius (36f), but hauling the Shuttle to the pad is fine as long as the crawlerway - the path to the pad - is not blocked by snow.
STS-130 Mission Patch
Spacers will be keeping a close eye on the launch preparations so stay tuned for updates as STS-130 approaches.
