Two Boilermakers Mission To Space, Cancelled

Last updated on Saturday, June 13, 2009

(WEST LAFAYETTE) - Two boilermakers who had planned to head to outer space this morning will have to wait a while longer.

Purdue University Alumni Mark Polansky and David Wolf were supposed to start their 16-day mission at 7:17 a.m., but NASA scrubbed the planned lift-off due to a hydrogen leak.

Endeavour's latest mission includes returning a Japanese Astronaut to Earth and swapping out gigantic batteries.

No word let on how long it will take to fix the hydrogen leak.
