Tropical Storm Isaac Delays NASA Launch

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — Saturday’s Atlas V launch of NASA’s Radiation Belt Storm Probes spacecraft was scrubbed yesterday by United Launch Alliance due to weather.

Due to concerns about the approaching Tropical Storm Isaac, United Launch Alliance will roll the Atlas V back into the Vertical Integration Facility until the storm passes the Florida peninsula.

United Launch Alliance says that another attempt will be made on Thursday August 30, 2012 at 4:05 a.m. EDT with a 20-minute launch window.
