[b]Launch time re-targeted (again)[/b]
Today's liftoff of the Ares I-X rocket is now scheduled for 9:24 a.m. EDT. The T-4 minute hold will remain in effect until 9:20 a.m.
Weather currently is "green," but as clouds move in and out of the area, the range could go "red" from time to time.
At Pad 39B, the area is being cleared of all non-essential personnel for testing of the firing chain and range safety system. Offshore, the danger area will be cleared of all boats.
The launch team is still considering when to pull the five-hole probe cover off of the instrumentation installed at the tip of the rocket.
