New Horizons

The Pluto bound spacecraft is set to launch today at 1:24 P.M. EST form Cape Canaveral.

If you want to watch the begining of this mission, which will be the fastest man-made object ever, check out NASA TV. Live coverage starts at 11:00 A.M.

UPDATE: They've had to postpone the launch for high winds twice. The first time for 15 min or so, the second for a little bit longer. Hopefully, the winds will die down enough for the launch to go at 2:30 EST.

UPDATE 2: They delayed it again, this time to 3:05 P.M. The only problem now is the wind. Hopefully that will clear up soon enough.

UPDATE 3: Drat! Scrubbed for the day. They'll have to try again tomorrow at 1:24.
