(What about Delta IV?)

14-Feb-07 | THEMIS delayed by 24 hours

Launch of NASA’s THEMIS spacecraft has been pushed back by one day, to Friday 16 February. Thunderstorms at Cape Canaveral led to postponement of fuelling operations, preventing the second stage’s hypergolic propellants (Aerozine-50 and nitrogen tetroxide) from being loaded. The weather is expected to clear and forecasters are predicting an 80% chance of good conditions on Friday. (NASA ELV Status Report, 13-Feb-07, Spaceflight Now Mission Status Center, 13-Feb-07)
