Air Force Academy Launch Delayed

Cadets at the Air Force Academy are going to have wait again for the launch of a satellite they built.

It was first delayed by the Columbia shuttle disaster two years ago. The launch scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend was delayed by problems with the commercial rocket that was to carry it.

The satellite, which will be run from a ground station at the academy, is designed to help solve military communication problems.
