Well, the weather didn’t cooperate with us today. Winds andclouds we’re outside of our allowable limits, so we’re packing it in and we’lltry again tomorrow. Launch window opens at 8:00 EDT on Oct. 28 and continuesthrough until noon.

Launch coverage onNASA TV begins at 5 am EDT – www.nasa.gov/ntv

    What happens to the “five-hole-probe” if it rains tonight? From what I understand it was very important to not remove the cover before a launch was confirmed. Now that the vehicle have to sit there for a long time without a cover, will this create problems tomorrow?

    Sorry that it didn’t happen today, I was really looking forward to it as well. According to NOAA.gov the weather at the cape should be clearer tomorrow, and if it bashes your launch window then too, there is no precipitation or adverse weather at all expected Thursday.
    In short, tomorrow and the day after your chances will assuredly improve.

    I continue to wish the team all the best, and hope that tomorrow all the conditions come together for a successful launch!

    The countdown haltet at T-4min.
    When the launch was cancelled
    for today, how much of the
    previous actions have to be
    “reversed”, and where does the
    new countdown start tomorrow?

    Sometimes, I really hate the weather!!! If only NASA could get some serious money from somewhere for localised weather modification, then it would be the best of both worlds!

    THANK YOU NASA I WATCHED THE ACTUAL LAUNCH WINDOW LIVE IN TAMPA,FLA. ON A LIBRARY COMPUTER ON THE WEB SITE OF NASA LIVE TV. ARIES1X LOOKS GREAT FOR FLIGHT TODAY BUT DUE TO WEATHER WINDOWS WE SCRUBBED THE LAUNCH TO TRY A GO TEST FLIGHT OF THIS VEHICLE TO 28 MILES UP TOMORROW. MY SIGHT IN THIS IN MY ENGINEERING DEGREE IS THAT THE ELECTRONICS IS SOUND AND WILL GO PERFECT AT THE RIGHT TIME OF LAUNCH IN TODAYS WORLD AND FUTURE TO COME . IT WAS DONE RIGHT .
    THANK USA AND NASA PER ORDER OF PRESIDENT :BURACK OBAMA

    Sorry that things didn’t work out today – you got so close to launching!
    Good luck for Wednesday, Ares 1-X looks like a great vehicle, I hope the Constellation program is successful.

    What happens tonight (Tuesday) when the uncovered five-hole probe gets rained on? Rain is approaching the area as I write. Sure hope all is well with Ares 1-X.
