The probe cover is clear of the probe but stuck on the top of the rocket, should not be a problem for flight

Long delay expected a cargo ship has moved into the range off Florida, they are assessing the situation, the boat has been contacted and told to move, fast.

Seems ship is clear and they want to get the rocket off as fast as they can before the next weather front comes in.

Countdown cut-off at 2:39 before launch, hopeful they can recycle and try again from T-4 minutes.

The countdown was stopped due to weather at launch time, Kathy Winters the Range Weather Officer was worried about cloud overhead.

They don't seem to realise the window was 4 hours long today and we are half way through that, there was no guaranteed launch time, they keep saying there are delays. Right now they are waiting for a report from pilots above the pad on the cloud and are ready to start the 4 minute countdown straight away if it's clear.

She is a bit of a NASA MILF. But she needs a decent haircut.

Now looks like 15:19 GMT but I don't think they will get it off today, the weather only gave a 40% change of launch so this was to be expected.

15:14 GMT now, due to the weather being so changeable they are shortening the gaps between attempt times.

I think they are going to start the clock at T-4 minutes but the weather may again stop it before T-0, wind just stopped that plan, back another 5 minutes
