Weather delays Atlas launch
Posted: Sat, Aug 29, 2015, 12:00 PM ET (1600 GMT)
A forecast of stormy weather has postponed Monday's scheduled launch of a military communications satellite on an Atlas 5 from Florida. The Atlas 5 551 launch of the fourth Mobile User Objective System was scheduled for Monday morning from Cape Canaveral, but mission managers decided Friday night to postpone the launch given a forecast of winds and rain associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Erika. The launch is now scheduled for no earlier than Wednesday, September 2. The MUOS-4 satellite is the latest in a series of Navy satellites designed to provide secure mobile communications services.
