High winds postpone Delta launch
Posted: Thu, Dec 6, 2007, 6:12 AM ET (1112 GMT)
The launch of an Italian remote sensing satellite on a Delta 2 from California was postponed Wednesday night because of high winds. The Delta 2 7420-10 was scheduled to launch the COSMO-SkyMed 2 satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 9:31 pm EST Wednesday (0231 GMT Thursday), but gusty winds kept the launch from taking place during its instantaneous launch window. The launch has been postponed for 24 hours, although weather conditions are forecast to be poor again today. COSMO-SkyMed 2 is the second in a series of four radar imagery satellites for the Italian space agency ASI and the Italian Ministry of Defense. The first satellite was launched in June, also on a Delta 2 from Vandenberg.
