ST5 Launch Status Update

The second launch attempt of the Pegasus rocket carrying ST5 is scheduled for no earlier than March 21. The first launch attempt on March 15 was called off after a locking pin failed to retract onboard the Pegasus just prior to the rocket's release from the L-1011 jet. Orbital Sciences Corporation, the rocket's manufacturer, and NASA engineers are currently working to determine and correct the problem.
