The launch of the Boeing Delta 2 rocket to put a new polar-orbiting weather satellite in orbit was delayed due to technical problems.
"We have a decision by Boeing Mission Director Rich Murphy and NASA Launch Manager Omar Baez that we will scrub for today," Diller announced from the management control center at 0900 GMT. "There is not enough time to complete the work necessary at the pump house to resolve the electrical problems and still meet our launch window. This is currently planned to be a 24-hour scrub."
