Countdown Commenced

Spacers Quickie

The countdown has commenced for the Ares I-X test rocket launch. NASA issued the call to stations at 12:30am EDT, and the countdown began at 1:00am. The newly renovated Young-Crippen firing room will play host to the event, but the planned 8:00am liftoff may be scuppered by the weather, with only a 40% chance of favorable conditions on the cards. There is a 4 hour launch window though, so keep an eye on things until then.
