Wind gust delays Delta launch

Delta 2 launch A strong gust of wind in the final minute of the countdown delayed Friday's scheduled launch of a Delta 2 booster for a day. The Delta 2 was scheduled to lift off at 1:00 pm EST (1800 GMT) Friday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, to put five replacement Iridium satellites into orbit. However, a strong gust of wind caused the booster, which is not bolted to the launch pad, to sway beyond safe limits, forcing the launch to be scrubbed at T-55 seconds. The launch has been rescheduled for 12:54 pm EST (1754 GMT) Saturday.
