Only minor damage to space shuttle Endeavour’s external fuel tank foam was identified during detailed inspections Saturday by technicians and engineers on Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Evaluations indicate there was no damage to the spacecraft. Teams were assessing any possible damage from severe storms that hit Kennedy on Wednesday and Thursday. ‪ Today, workers at the pad will continue closeouts in Endeavour’s aft section and will load hydrazine into the shuttle’s hydraulic power unit. ‪Endeavour is targeted to launch to the International Space Station on April 19 at 7:48 p.m. EDT.
