New Horizons Update 1:57 PM

Adjusted T-0 again. Launch now set for 2:30 PM EST, assuming the winds die down.

The suspense is killing me.

Assuming the launch happens today (although that isn't a necessary assumption), what are the peak g-forces the craft will hit on its 9 hour flight to Luna?
Well, it's 3.8 X 10^8 meters to the Moon, and 9 hours is 32,000 seconds. So that would be an average speed of 11,728 meters/second. All I need now is to know how long it takes to accelerate, and then we can divide by 9.8 and get the g-force.
