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.
