With the anticipation of high winds, lightning and thunderstorms moving into the Kennedy Space Center from the Gulf of Mexico, Endeavour on top of its 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) has been moved back into the Mate-Demate Device (MDD) as a precaution.
Inside the MDD offers the shuttle and 747 aircraft better protection from the weather than sitting out on the open Shuttle Landing Facility apron. There is a 60% chance of rain today and winds are expected in excess of 50 mph as this front moves across the state from the Gulf.
Check back later for updates.
Updated 9/18/2012 @ 2115: The 747 aircraft was fueled for the cross country flight, everything is on schedule for a 0715 take off Wednesday morning from the SLF, a final weather briefing will be conducted at 0500. Push back from the MDD is set for 0400.
