Launch of ARGOS Spacecraft Postponed

U.S. Air Force and Boeing [NYSE:BA] officials have postponed Sunday's launch attempt of the ARGOS spacecraft. Continued wind and weather constraints have delayed the launch, scheduled to fly aboard a Boeing Delta II.

Following a morning weather briefing, the decision was made to make another launch attempt on Tuesday morning. The launch window on Tuesday, Jan. 19 is 2:39 a.m. PST.

The ARGOS launch has two NASA-sponsored secondary payloads, the Ørsted spacecraft for Denmark, and the SUNSAT micro-satellite for South Africa.
