New Horizons post-launch press conference

Emily Lakdawalla • January 19, 2006

I am updating this as I take notes from the press conference.

OK, back to New Horizons!

Emily Lakdawalla • January 19, 2006

So the Stardust press conference is still going on on NASA TV, but I am now turning to the Internet to monitor the status of New Horizons' third attempted launch day.

How New Horizons' launch date affects its arrival date

Emily Lakdawalla • January 18, 2006

I was looking at that table of launch times for New Horizons and realized that the table included another valuable column of data that I hadn't noticed before: it tells you what year New Horizons will arrive, for each of the possible launch dates.

New Horizons launch scrubbed for today.

Emily Lakdawalla • January 17, 2006

Well, it was a nail-biting morning and too bad that New Horizons didn't go but these things happen pretty frequently.

We're at the Cape! More properly, we're at Cocoa Beach just down the coast, having flown in from Denver today.
