Weather delays Globalstar launch to Wednesday
Posted: Wed, Feb 6, 2013, 6:11 AM ET (1111 GMT)
Poor weather delayed Tuesday's scheduled launch of six Globalstar satellites on a Soyuz rocket by one day. The launch of the six satellites, on a Soyuz-Fregat rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, was scheduled for Tuesday but postponed because of high winds at altitudes of 8 to 10 kilometers. The launch is now scheduled for 11:04 am EST (1604 GMT) Wednesday. The rocket is carrying the last of four groups of next-generation Globalstar satellites; the previous three were launched between October 2010 and December 2011.
