NASA just annouced ANOTHER delay for GLAST.  Here is an excerpt from the official press release:

“WASHINGTON — NASA has set no earlier than June 11 as the new target
launch date for the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST,
from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The launch window
extends from 11:45 a.m. to 1:40 p.m. EDT.

NASA initially had targeted June 7 for the GLAST launch aboard a Delta
II rocket. Additional time was needed to replace the rocket’s flight
termination system battery, which indicated a problem Wednesday. ”
