Space shuttle Endeavor prepares for pre-dawn launch

CAPE CANAVERAL (WKOW) -- The space shuttle Endeavor, loaded with a new room and observation deck for the International Space Station, is on schedule for its pre-dawn launch Sunday morning.

Forecasters were hopeful that winds would subside in time for the 4:39 a.m. EST launch time.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, an ex-astronaut, noted on Saturday that there are only five missions left.

Endeavor's six shuttle astronauts slept through the afternoon on Saturday in preparation for the 13-day flight.
