The unmanned launch of the US Orion deep space vehicle has been scrubbed for today. Cranky valves and high winds at the Cape caused the delay. There is another launch window tomorrow (12/5) at 7:05am EST.
I realized this morning that this is the first time that a member of my family has not been directly involved with a NASA manned space project. My uncle worked on all prior manned NASA projects from Mercury through the Space Shuttles. My brother works at Ball, but he is currently engaged on the James Webb Space Telescope.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
