Minotaur launch scrubbed again
Launch team at Wallops Island launch site was waiting for thunderstorm cells to clear the area, and with an hour left in the countdown, time ran out on their three-hour launch window. No word yet on when they will try again.
UPDATE: The Minotaur launch has been rescheduled for tonight - Friday - with the same 8 - 11 p.m. launch window. They seem likely to face the same problems with thunderstorms. Here's the forecast for Baltimore. And here's the forecast for Virginia's Eastern Shore.
Not sure whether they will be able to try again this weekend. The NASA Wallops Flight Facility's tracking systems will be needed to assist with Monday's planned launch of the shuttle Atlantis. The Atlantis crew is headed for the Hubble Space Telescope for a week of repairs and upgrades.
