NASA has scrubbed today's planned lift-off of space shuttle Endeavour due to a "low cloud ceiling" at Kennedy Space Center.

The agency says the next launch opportunity is tomorrow (Monday) at 09:14 GMT.

Endeavour's STS-130 mission to the International Space Station will be the last nighttime shuttle launch. The 13-day excursion is primarily to deliver and attach the US's Tranquility node and seven-windowed cupola.
