I have been trying to watch the launch of the Delta 4 rocket launching
the GPS 2F-1 navigation satellite.
It has had several down to the wire holds and reschedules.
Looking again.

Welcome to Spaceflight Now's live coverage of the Delta 4 rocket
launching the GPS 2F-1 navigation satellite. Text updates will appear
automatically; there is no need to reload the page. Follow us on

0012 GMT (8:12 p.m. EDT)
That issue in the Delta 4 rocket's countdown has been resolved, the
launch team just announced. Work to finish fueling the vehicle before
tonight's 11:00 p.m. EDT liftoff is underway.
0002 GMT (8:02 p.m. EDT)
The launch team has run into some sort of issue during the first stage
liquid hydrogen post-fueling vent and relief checks. Engineers are
assessing it.

The first stage liquid oxygen tank has been loaded and the upper
stage's LOX tank is being filled currently. The upper stage liquid
hydrogen has been tanked as well.

Weather remain favorable and there's an 80 percent chance of "go"
conditions at launch time tonight.

Thanks for looking up with me.
