FLAT : (Four Letter Acronym Telescope)

Or, slightly more seriously, the Feenberg Telescope, or the Kemble telescope.

GLAST arrived at Kennedy Space Center
The rocket that will launch GLAST is a Delta II 7920-H, manufactured and prepared for launch by United Launch Alliance. It is a heavier-lift model of the standard Delta II that uses larger solid rocket boosters. The first stage is scheduled to be erected on Pad 17-B the week of March 17. Launch is planned for 16th May 2008...

Florida Today's Flame Tranch blog is reporting:

04/18/2008 03:13 PM GLAST delay expected after accident

http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/...loridatoday.com

I can't open the link. Does anyone know more?

Edit: removed parentheses around link
Please don't add parentheses around long links, it makes the page too wide to read and breaks the link.

Looks like a damaged adapter beam (they've apparently already organized and tested a replacement). Processing will continue on Monday, so only a short delay.

Ben - your check out photos are SO much better than the stuff the usual KSC PAO photographers come up with. Stunning images.

Well, thanks. :-)

The June 3 launch day will only occur if the shuttle goes May 31. If the shuttle is scrubbed 24, 48 hours then GLAST will delay accordingly with three days between them. If the shuttle were to be delayed much beyond it, GLAST would surely go first.

There is a 70 percent chance of acceptable weather both the 7th and 8th.

The GLAST prelaunch news conference is planned for 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 5, at NASA's Kennedy Space Center News Center. Question and answer capability will be available from participating NASA locations.
There were some issues with the Delta II launch vehicle, the launch window extends from June 7 from 11:45 a.m. to 1:40 p.m. EDT and remains unchanged through Aug. 7. Fingers crossed!
