Forecast Still 70% "Go" For Saturday Launch

The launch team for NASA's Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is enjoying a Thanksgiving Day off with no issues being worked that would prevent Saturday's scheduled launch.

The United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket with the MSL Curiosity rover is on schedule to be rolled out to Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 8 a.m. EST Friday. Launch is set for 10:02 a.m. Saturday.

Today's forecast still shows a 70 percent chance of good weather at launch time.
