Delta II Launch of ARGOS Satellite Delayed

Officials scrubbed this morning's launch attempt of a Boeing [NYSE: BA] Delta II launch vehicle carrying the ARGOS satellite for the U.S. Air Force.

The launch was scrubbed after a momentary spike in one of the two power sources to the first stage electronics package was observed. The Delta team is analyzing the data from the vehicle to determine what steps need to be taken prior to the next launch attempt.

A new launch date will be announced early next week. Please check the Boeing Launch Hotline for updated information.

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