[b]SpaceX SES-8 launch delayed to Thanksgiving[/b]
A telemetry glitch and an "off-nominal condition" with the first stage liquid oxygen pressurization system forced SpaceX to scrub Monday (Nov. 25) its planned launch of an upgraded Falcon 9 rocket on its first mission to a geosynchronous transfer orbit.
The next attempt will be on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, at 5:38 p.m. EST (2238 GMT).
(According to Spaceflight Now, the Federal Aviation Administration did not approve launch attempts on Tuesday or Wednesday to avoid interfering with two of the busiest travel days of the year.)
