NASA sets date for shuttle finale

After some debate, NASA today said it has set the final two launch dates for its venerable space shuttles. Those dates are: * Nov. 1 for space shuttle Discovery's STS-133 mission. * Feb. 26, 2011, for the liftoff of shuttle Endeavour's STS-134 mission.NASA said the dates needed to be adjusted because critical payload hardware for STS-133 will not be ready in time to support the planned Sept. 16 launch. With STS-133 moving to November, STS-134 cannot fly as planned, NASA stated so the next available launch window is in February 2011.
