Space shuttle readied for launch

NASA loaded fuel into space shuttle Endeavour's external tank for the second evening in a row Sunday in anticipation of pre-dawn launch.
The three-hour operation began at 6:50 p.m. ET just as the NFL Super Bowl game was getting underway in Miami.
Endeavour is scheduled to blast off from Florida at 4:14 a.m. ET Monday on the last big space station construction mission.
Sunday's launch attempt was scrubbed due to thick, low clouds. Although more of the same is expected Monday, forecasters said there is a 60 per cent chance of acceptable weather.
