Friday's scheduled launch of NASA's [URL=http://www.nasa.gov/phoenix]Phoenix Mars Lander[/URL] aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket has been postponed 24 hours. The two available launch times on Saturday, Aug. 4, are 5:26:34 a.m. and 6:02:59 a.m. EDT.
Due to a forecast for severe weather around the Kennedy Space Center launch pad in Florida on Tuesday afternoon, fueling of the second stage will not be completed. Although fueling is expected to be finished Wednesday morning, there is insufficient contingency time in the schedule to move forward with the launch on Friday.
NASA TV and Web coverage will begin at 3:30 a.m. on Saturday.
