Endeavour Gouge Will Not Be Fixed

The shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to return to Earth next week with a gouge still in its underbelly.

After days of ground tests and analysis, NASA said astronauts do not have to take a risky spacewalk to fix it.

NASA said the tear is too small to create a catastrophe like the one that caused Columbia to disintegrate, killing the crew.
