Proton launch (file photo) A launch of a Proton booster carrying an American direct broadcasting satellite was scrubbed on Monday because of technical problems. The launch of the DIRECTV-5 satellite on a Proton-K booster was scheduled for Monday at 1:00 pm EDT (1700 GMT), but the countdown was halted only a few minutes before liftoff, and launch controllers soon announced that the launch was postponed until Tuesday. The problem was originally reported to be with the satellite, but was later described as a telemetry problem with the Proton itself. The launch has been rescheduled for Tuesday at 1 pm EDT (1700 GMT), but a final decision on a launch may not be made until early Tuesday.
