Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is an enemy action.

STS-121: Launch time

We’re roughly an hour before the scheduled lift-off of space shuttle Discovery. You can follow the launch on NASA‘s site. Weather is still an issue so a final go/no-go decision has yet to be made.

Update: T-9 minutes and holding; 20 minutes before launch… Weather status is still “no-go”.

Update 2: T-9 minutes and holding; 6 minutes before launch… Everything is “go” except the weather station which reports “no-go” because of anvil clouds. The launch team will continue to use the launch window and make use of spare 5 minutes.

Update 3: Launch scrubbed! The weather is not good. There are anvil clouds within 20 miles of the Shuttle Landing Facility which also serves as the Abort Landing Site. Another attempt to launch will be made tomorrow. Preferred launch time is 3:26 PM.
