NASANew HorizonsMakes Statement

Launch delayed again

18 Jan, 2006

Severe storms knock out power to the New Horizons mission control center at John Hopkins University in Maryland. Although they have backup power, the team wants to be sure they have enough backup before proceeding with critical operations like launching and early flight operations. They decide to delay the launch for the following day.

We’ve been working on this for 17 years so I don’t think a couple of days are going to hurt us.
