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.

It better be today
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.
