Winds delay Proton launch again

EchoStar 8 launch poster (ILS) High winds delayed the launch of a Proton booster carrying an American television broadcasting satellite early Wednesday for the second straight day. The Proton-K was scheduled to lift off from Baikonur at 1:15 am EDT (0515 GMT) Wednesday, but high winds aloft forced launch controllers to delay the launch. Similar high winds led to the postponement of Tuesday morning's launch attempt. The launch is now scheduled for the same time Thursday. The vehicle is carrying EchoStar 8, the latest direct television broadcasting satellite for EchoStar Communications Corporation. The launch was originally scheduled for late June but was delayed by a problem with the spacecraft.
