Friday Opportunity at 7:05 A.M. EST

The launch team has tentatively set a liftoff time of 7:05 a.m. EST, the opening of a 2-hour, 39 minute window just as today. We will begin our launch coverage at 6 a.m. tomorrow on NASA TV and on the Orion blog. Tune into the blog and NASA.gov for continuing updates throughout the day.

  1. ok, now the team recheck the opening of hydrogen valves the issue maybe can be passed off… good luck, Mario Cardenas, cheers from chiloe island

  2. Having access to image and COM during countdown helps us all understand and appreciate the complexity and care required for flight operations. Kudoos

  3. I’m so sorry, guys. We all know how hard you worked to do this and how badly you wanted it up there today. Probably even more than us. But we believe in you guys and everyone knows you can do this. Every single one of you is smart and strong and awesome and when it gets up there it will be because of YOU GUYS!!

  4. I had a dream once where the year was 2064 and I was very old…I was going to board a Rocket that was about 1 km high and it had written in blue down the side “ORINATION” I think it was an explorer rocket no return.

  5. I am very disappointed that the US can’t get off the ground today. I guarantee you the Russians would not have given up on the range today and would have flown. This is what happens when the US puts less effort into their engines and more into video games and IPhones. Disappointing.

    1. The Russians have a long history of killing astronauts and blowing up rockets. Scrubbed flights and malfunctions are a part of every flight test program. That why they’re called flight tests.

    2. How can you make that claim when you don’t even know what the seriousness of the problem was? You don’t think the Russkis ever scrubbed a mission? It’s a good thing that not everyone has your myopic view of life.

  6. Guess I’ll be late to work again tomorrow! Thank you for the updates, for the live feed, and for helping humanity take the next step back on to the road to the stars.

  7. Take your time and get it right. This is an important test of the systems. I’m not getting any younger and have been waiting 40 years for the Mars mission. If I make it to 2035 I hope I still have my mind..lol
