COLBERT needs to wait

August 25, 2009 05:51 by scibuff

At 05:25 UTC NASA’s launch director Pete Nickolenko coordinating with the Mission Management Team (MMT) called off today’s launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavor on the STS-128 mission due inclement weather at the Kennedy Space Center.  The teams will execute a 24 hour scrub turnaround procedure and attempt another launch tomorrow. The launch window tomorrow will open at 05:05:21 UTC and close at 05:15:21 UTC; the target time launch time is at 05:10:21 UTC . The most recent weather forecast predicts 70% chance of acceptable weather conditions.

Tough luck COLBRET, you’ll need to wait (at least) one more day.
