TDRS-M satellite illustration (NASA) The launch of a NASA communication satellite scheduled for early August has been postponed, NASA said late July 21. In a statement issued late July 21, NASA said the agency, with satellite manufacturer Boeing and launch services provider United Launch Alliance, "are reviewing a new launch date in August" for the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) M spacecraft. NASA said they heed to replace an S-band omnidirectional antenna on the TDRS-M satellite, which was apparently damaged during final closeout work a week earlier. The satellite was scheduled to launch Aug. 3 on an Atlas 5. TDRS-M is the third in the latest series of satellites that provide communications for the International Space Station and other low Earth orbit spacecraft.
