SUMMARY: NASA began the countdown for Thursday's launch of the space shuttle Atlantis; however, the specific launch time is still being kept confidential until 24 hours before - some time between 1900-2300 GMT (2:00pm-6:00pm EST). When Atlantis does launch, it will fly up to dock with the International Space Station and its 7-astronaut crew will attach a $600 million truss and $190 million rail car and track which will enable the station's robot arm to move from end to end assisting construction.
