    It's the beginning of a short window (somewhere around 5 minutes) when the plane of the International Space Station's will precess about the earth (thanks to the oblateness of the planet) to sync up with the shuttle orbit on Sunday when they perform rendezvous. If they miss the time, it has an associated fuel penalty that comes with performing the necessary yaw steering to correct for the delay, and at about $10,000 per pound of payload to LEO, well, it's preferable to NOT need to have extra fuel...

    Plus, the ground crew might miss the start "Dancing with the Stars" if they don't complete the launch on time.

    Re: Space Shuttle Endeavour

    There was an awesome Nova episode recently about the Columbia disaster and the future of space shuttles that you may be able to catch in repeats, if you're a space/science nut.

    Also, there's a fascinating one about multiverses, that follows Mark Everett of the awesome band the Eels, whose dad was a genius that pioneered the theory of multiple universes. It'll blow your mind.
