Wallops Milsat Launch Delayed

The launch of Tacsat 2 on a Minotaur-1 rocket from Wallops has been postponed. Tacsat is having problems pointing its solar panels properly (possibly software related). There is no estimate when the launch will occur now. One official at the pre-launch press conference said, "It could be a couple of days, it could be three weeks, it's too early to tell right now."

More as we get it on the launch of this new military communications satellite.
