Leak could keep shuttle grounded

An air leak in the crew cabin could keep NASA from launching the Space Shuttle Endeavour next week.

NASA thought it fixed the problem by tightening a loose bolt, but tests show air is still escaping.

Engineers are analyzing the problem and are trying to pinpoint the source of the leak.

It could take so much work that NASA might not be able to launch Endeavour on August 7.
