At the Countdown Status Briefing today, NASA Test Director Pete 
Nickolenko and STS-114 payload manager Scott Higginbotham said that 
everyone is ready to return the Space Shuttle to flight, to return to 
the International Space Station, and to return the crew back safely. 
They reported everything is on schedule and there are no technical 
issues with hardware or systems. Shuttle weather officer Kathy Winters 
reported that weather conditions are still indicating only a 30% chance 
that weather could delay the launch.
