(Rocket Launch Live)   Tory Bruno, beware of the Ides of March. Oh well, he won't listen and so ULA will be launching a Wideband Global SATCOM for the DoD at 6:56 PM ET from Cape Canaveral using a "Delta IV Medium+ (5,4)." In unrelated news: Et tu, Elon?   (rocketlaunch.live) divider line

Something like that.

Computer-checked redline limits will instead be monitored manually, thereby working around the concern for the issue to trip up the terminal countdown.
Launch Director Tom Heter III and Mission Director Col. Shane Clark have approved that action, so this issue has been cleared.


Has it blown up yet Dave?
Nope.
Pressures are good then.

Seems like that's the hold up. Something over-pressurized on the rocket earlier, but that's been fixed.

They REALLY want this bird up BAD.

Military Comm payload.

Also, pretty wide launch window so the delay wasn't too big a deal (now that everything is fixed anyway).
