Cape Canaveral AFS, Fla. (Mar. 4, 2011) – The launch attempt of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V with the Air Force’s second Orbital Test Vehicle was scrubbed today for weather. Thick cumulus clouds, which could produce triggered lightning, were within 10 miles of Space Launch Complex-41 during the scheduled launch windows. This is a launch criteria violation.

The Atlas V vehicle and OTV-2 are safe and secure at this time. The launch is rescheduled for Saturday, March 5 at 4:09 p.m. EST.
