    Thanks for the confirmation Wayne, I wonder why NASA scraped that launch? gutted it's not going now, I'm destined not to see a launch as we've missed a few over the years either by a few days or because they got cancelled/delayed. looks like i'll have to watch it on the TV :sad2:

    I believe it was something to do with the equipment they are taking to the space station, not ready in time.
    Just Googled, heres the story with NY times http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/24/science/space/24nasa.html

    Just read that article Wayne, Bloody cosmic ray experiment?? do these guys not realise that there will be thousands of Brits who they have let down by them taking their time in getting this piece of equipment ready :lmao:

    Oh well the missus will be happy to have the morning by the pool instead.

    Pete.
