>------------------------
>Bad weather at Cape Canaveral scrubbed the launch of the Space Shuttle
>Columbia for the second time. Thunderstorms surrounded the launch facility,
>and the director held the countdown at the five-minute mark throughout their
>entire window of opportunity, but eventually the launch was called off.
>They'll try again on Friday.
