Echostar X satellite launch delayed

Kevin C. Tofel

First the bad news: no word on why nor on when the Echostar X launch will resume, but it was halted yesterday. Now for the geeky good news: there's more info on the launch than there are pixels in a 1080p display. If you're interested in how they get those blasted satellites up in a relatively stationary orbit, you can read to your heart's content over at the Sea Launch Mission page. The entire mission is carried live via a web cam feed so when they get things going again, you can watch the launch; sorry but there's no HD feed available. 10...9...8....
