Spaceflight is complicated, with many constraints and requirements that must be met before all systems can claim “go” for launch. Unfortunately for STS-130, this evening’s “dynamic” weather proved to be too risky for this morning’s launch. Endeavour’s first launch attempt was scrubbed at 4:30 AM EST. The good news? We get to try it again in just under 24 hours and get to experience all the launch countdown fun twice. Not bad! Check back with my tweets tomorrow for the status of Endeavour’s second launch attempt.
