After a week of weather delays, NASA officials set a Wednesday launch time for space shuttle Atlantis on its mission to resume construction of the international space station. Officials made the launch decision Thursday after checking the Kennedy Space Center for damage following Ernesto's pass as a tropical depression. They found no problems. "We're back," said NASA spokesman Bill Johnson. "There was no water intrusion in any operational areas, and so basically we came through this one unscathed."
