The shuttle Endeavour was loaded with liquid oxygen and hydrogen rocket fuel today as the countdown continues ticking smoothly toward launch this evening on a space station assembly mission. There are no technical problems of any significance and forecasters are continuing to predict a 70 percent chance of good weather. Liftoff is targeted for 7:55:39 p.m. EST, roughly the moment Earth's rotation carries the launch pad into the plane of the space station's orbit. The astronauts are scheduled to begin strapping in shortly after 4:30 p.m.
