Where science and tech meet creativity.

During a NASA Town Hall meeting at AAS Dr. Morse made mention of GLAST being pushed back from June 5th until the 6th or 7th due to issues with the Delta II rocket.

I later confirmed with Dr. Jon Morse that GLAST is being pushed back until at least the 6th or 7th of June. Upon further questioning Dr. Morse said the delay is because the close out operations for the Delta II rocket aren’t yet complete. Apparently the Air Force would like to see a more rigorous close out operation for this particular mission.
