As expected, the launch of NASA’s Earth Observing-1, an advanced land imaging mission that is part of the New Millenium Program, has slipped into April 2000. The next Delta launch will be another batch of Globalstar satellites, to fly from Cape Canaveral on 27 January. This will be the longest hiatus for the Delta program since 1995.
