[b]"Go," then "no go" for launch[/b]
After polling their teams, launch director Ed Mango and test director Jeff Spalding gave their "go" to proceed with launching Ares I-X at 11:08 a.m. EDT. The countdown clock, held at T-4 minutes, was set to begin ticking again at 11:04 a.m.
A recent forecast called for an 80% chance of acceptable weather at launch, however at current, we are "red" for triboelectrification and therefore the range is "no go" at this time. Weather officer Kathy Winters said the situation is dynamic and an edge to the cloud cover may provide an opening.
[b]Update:[/b] Waiting on the weather (again), the launch has been reset to 11:20 a.m. 11:30 a.m. EDT.
