The next launch attempt of Kodiak Star aboard a Lockheed Martin Athena I
launch vehicle is currently scheduled for Monday, Sept. 24 at 5:30 p.m. ADT,
(9:30 p.m. EDT).

The downrange C-band radar located at Cordova, AK, that failed to operate
properly on Saturday has been repaired and retested.

The launch weather forecast on Monday calls for a 70% chance of not meeting
the launch weather criteria due to a low-pressure system that is drifting
slowly to the east. This system brought rain and low clouds to Kodiak
Island on Sunday. The probability of not having acceptable launch weather
on Tuesday is 20%.

Live coverage of the Kodiak Star launch on NASA Television will begin at 4
p.m. ADT (8 p.m. EDT)
