GRAND FORKS (AP) — A sophisticated camera built at the University of North Dakota and blasted into space aboard the space shuttle Endeavor last fall is not yet operational.

UND had said the AgCam was to become operational Tuesday at the International Space Station, but startup work was delayed. It was expected to resume Thursday.

The camera is to send back high-resolution pictures and information about the Earth that can be used by farmers and scientists.
