KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - Railroad cars sit on a track that runs past the launch pad on Complex 41 (background) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Waiting on the pad for launch is the Atlas V/New Horizons spacecraft, surrounded by four lightning masts. Two scheduled launch attempts were scrubbed Jan. 17 and Jan. 18 due to weather conditions: high surface winds in Florida the first day and a storm-related power outage at the spacecraft mission operations center in Maryland on the second day. A third launch attempt has been scheduled for Jan. 19.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. ? Inside Orbital Sciences? Building 1555 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the wrapped Space Technology 5 (ST5) spacecraft is ready for mating to the Pegasus XL launch vehicle. The satellites contain miniaturized redundant components and technologies. Each will validate New Millennium Program selected technologies, such as the Cold Gas Micro-Thruster and X-Band Transponder Communication System. After deployment from the Pegasus, the micro-satellites will be positioned in a ?string of pearls? constellation that demonstrates the ability to position them to perform simultaneous multi-point measurements of the magnetic field using highly sensitive magnetometers. The data will help scientists understand and map the intensity and direction of the Earth?s magnetic field, its relation to space weather events, and affects on our planet. With such missions, NASA hopes to improve scientists? ability to accurately forecast space weather and minimize its harmful effects on space- and ground-based systems. Launch of ST5 is scheduled for Feb. 28 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
