New Horizons Launch Scrubbed Due to Wind

Today’s launch of New Horizons mission to Pluto has been scrubbed due to a redline monitor fault – winds in excess of 33 knots. The launch had been delayed multiple times today due to high winds. The launch will be recycled for an attempt tomorrow. The launch window opens tomorrow at 1:16 pm EST.
