Delta 4 first launch cose-up image (Boeing) The launch of a geostationary orbit weather satellite, scheduled for Friday night, has been delayed because of an unspecified problem with the satellite. A Delta 4 Medium-Plus booster was scheduled to lift off Friday evening from Cape Canaveral, carrying the GOES-N weather satellite. However, NASA and Boeing announced Thursday that the launch would be delayed for an unknown period because of a problem with the satellite, the nature of which was not disclosed. GOES-N is the latest satellite in the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite program, providing images and other weather data. The spacecraft also carries an x-ray imager for studies of the Sun.
