They can extend the 4 minute hold one more time, launch window closes at 4:27 so at 4:23 it's either start launch count down or scrub the mission. Try again tomorrow I guess.

See that little storm over the cape? No go due to weather... :yell: :hell: :hell:

It has 24 minutes to clear out due to the short launch window. I'm watching the radar, if they (we) get this off tonight, I'll be surprised.

For those of you that missed what happened last night, the experience of the "no go..." sucked if you watched it live...like I did.

Oh well, they will try again in a little over 4 hours.

One thing about this comes to mind...the probes are for studying the radiation belts. Why now instead of say, before you sent astronauts through them.

Just a reminder...
