Bad news 2

The launch of Solar Orbiter is again postponed and is now targeted for 9th of February, 23:03 h EST or 10th of February, 05:03 h. The new two-day launch delay was caused by two items that delayed transport of the spacecraft to the pad. The first item was a schedule conflict with a commercial mission launch from a nearby launch pad. The second item was bad weather.
We are sad ... no words ... we know now we are going to miss the launch at Kennedy Space Center.
Luckily, thanks to Kennedy Space Center, we still can attend a launch briefing on Thursday and they will give us free access to visit the site and the center.
