Space Shuttle Worker Falls off, Dies

space shuttle Endeavour on launch pad where worker died
My first post about space after the quake. But, this is...
Another tragedy. A worker working on the next-to-launch space shuttle  Endeavour fell off the Launch Pad 39A. His name was James Vanover.
There have been 2 accidents like this resulting in a death of a worker, once before the first launch of the Space Shuttle Columbia.

If this will delay the launch of Endeavour, I don't know.

Endeavour is one of the only 2 remaining shuttles in operation.
