LIVE: NASA gets ready for final shuttle launch

Forecasters say there's only a 30 percent chance the weather will be clear enough for this morning's schedule launch of space shuttle Atlantis.

The 12-day mission is NASA's last of the space shuttle program.

Despite the poor forecast, mission managers gave the OK for refueling. The shuttle is expected to launch at 11:26 a.m.
