New Horizons Launch To Be Tried Again Today

For those of you just joining us...

Yesterday, NASA attempted to launch the New Horizons spacecraft to Pluto, choosing the date in honor of my wife's birthday. :-) I posted periodic updates, which led to a lot of posting and some discussion as a bunch of us hoped for a launch.

To streamline things, today I will make one blog entry roughly around 1 PM about the launch, and keep posting updates as comments in that entry, until we get a launch. People are welcome to participate in a discussion as we monitor the situation and hope for a launch.

As a reminder, you can get updates from the Virtual Launch Control Center or from NASA TV.
