48 hours being the optimistic part, apparently.  NASASpaceFlight reporting some APU engineers saying between 3-5 days.  Will have to wait for the troubleshooting on this one.

LD Mike Leinbach just announced that the minimum scrub is now 72hrs, and the rest depends on the tech team findings.

Remember not to spread anything from NSF L2.
Also the quotes were from the public forum.

Now looks like Endeavour won't be launching earlier than May 8th.  They'll have to replace the Load Control Assembly in her aft avionics bay.

Endeavour will not leave the Earth before May 10

The U.S. space agency announced the launch of the shuttle Endeavour was delayed again and would not happen before May 10 Repairs to the electrical problem of the shuttle are indeed more time than expected.

Sunday, NASA announced that the shuttle Endeavour could not take off until May 8 It was after the failure of a thermostat mechanism for heating fuel lines of a turbogenerator that the mission had been temporarily adjourned, less than three hours before takeoff. If a single turbo is enough to operate the hydraulic system of the shuttle, the three available to the Shuttle must be in working condition to the launch.

However, a new release of the space agency announced the delay of at least two more days of the final liftoff of the Shuttle. This means he will not leave Earth before May 10 Work has now held to replace and test a faulty electrical distribution box. This "Load Control Assembly (LCA) is a nerve system of the ship as it redistributes electricity to nine networks and he is responsible for the problem of thermostat.

Officials of the mission show that the replacement of this piece is simple but functional testing to verify that the nine electrical systems are operational require two full days. This allows time for the six astronauts who have to climb aboard Endeavour to continue their preparations for the mission they will perform once they arrive on the ISS.

Need to be patient but that will make the shuttle live a bit more time Smiley

The STS program retirement reminds me more and more on how heroes (or foes) die in a Bollywood movie - slow, agonizing and with a lot of drama (but without the cool dances around - LOL)

NASA: "The six STS-134 astronauts are aboard Endeavour and the Close Out Crew is preparing to close the hatch. The Final Inspection Team reports finding nothing unusual during its survey of the external tank, Endeavour and the launch pad. Weather conditions are “go” and there are no major technical issues. Launch remains on schedule for 8:56:28 a.m. EDT."

Godspeed Endeavour!
