SCRUBBED

Doh! They've canceled the launch AGAIN. No launch today!

Tuesday's launch was scrubbed because of strong winds.

The next launch window is tomorrow (Thursday) from 1:08 p.m. ET to 3:07 p.m. ET. NASA has until February 14 to launch the probe.

Launch of NASA's New Horizons spacecraft at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., has been postponed, pending resolution of a weather-related power outage at the spacecraft mission operations center in Maryland. Mission managers will decide later today whether to proceed toward Thursday's launch opportunity, which runs from 1:08 p.m. to 3:07 p.m. EST.


Its actually been scrubbed due to a power cut at John Hopkins University, Laurel, MD.

The launch window extends until Feb 14...So at least this isn't critical or anything.

But from what i read if it is not launched soon and a few days off, it will take 5 more years to reach Pluto as it will miss Jupiter gravity assistance. It better be today

You're damn right!



NASA.gov
The Atlas V and its Centaur upper stage are being loaded with liquid oxygen in preparation for launch, set for 1:08 p.m. EST. In contrast to the last couple of days, the countdown is proceeding smoothly, and no issues are in work. The weather is cooperating nicely, and the Atlas V rocket and New Horizons spacecraft are in good shape.
