Thursday's final launch of Space Shuttle Discovery has been delayed again. This time, weather is to blame.

It's the latest in a series of postponements for NASA's oldest and most traveled space shuttle. Mission managers say they'll try again Friday just after noon our time.

Discovery's mission to the International Space Station has previously been delayed by gas leaks and an electrical problem.

NASA has until Sunday to launch Discovery otherwise the shuttle will remain grounded until the beginning of December because of unacceptable solar angles.
