The failure of a fuel gauge on Space Shuttle Atlantis is going to delay its launch to the International Space Station until January.

That's the official word from NASA, which says similar problems forced it to scrub a launch this past Thursday and Sunday.

The agency is under a rush to finish the International Space Station by 2010, the same year the shuttle program must come to an end.

The European's Columbus lab will be attached to the Space Station once the Shuttle Atlantis finally gets off the ground next year.
