[b]Winds postpone GRAIL launch to Friday[/b]
Upper level winds above Launch Complex 17B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station exceeded acceptable limits to launch NASA's GRAIL mission to the moon during the first of two launch opportunities on Thursday.
Liftoff has been re-targeted for Friday, Sept. 9.
GRAIL's launch period opened today (Sept. 8) and extends through Oct. 19. On each day, there are two separate instantaneous launch opportunities separated in time by approximately 39 minutes.
On Friday, Sept. 9, the first launch opportunity is at 8:33:25 a.m. EDT (12:33:25 GMT). The second launch opportunity is 9:12:31 a.m. EDT (13:12:31 a.m. PDT).
