NASA called Saturday’s attempt to put Discovery into space because of thunderstorm clouds near Kennedy Space Center.

Liftoff is rescheduled for 3:26 p.m. Eastern Time Sunday. As Shuttle Commander Steven Lindsey put it, "It wasn't our time today."

They could face a similar situation Sunday. More bad weather is in the forecast for the rest of the Independence Day weekend.
