CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- NASA will try again tomorrow to launch Space Shuttle Endeavour.
   That's after NASA's fifth launch attempt ended in another delay yesterday.
   Launch managers halted the countdown just minutes before Endeavour and its seven-member crew were supposed to blast off. Lightning and storms had popped up on both sides of the launch site.
   Endeavour's international space station mission has now been grounded for an entire month.
   If the mission doesn't get off the ground soon, it may have to wait until July 26, so Russia can send up supplies to the space station. Endeavour would need to be out of the way before Russia's unmanned cargo ship can dock.
   The shuttle is carrying the final segment of Japan's $1 billion space lab. Endeavour is also carrying hundreds of pounds of food for the space station crew.
