Careful about time zones: that May 4 date is listed as "Japan Standard Time" in the PDF.

Just for a bit of perspective: today on http://spaceflightnow.com/category/news/

3 out of the top 4 headlines are about launch delays, and none of them are spacex ;)

for the record, since that page will change with time, here are top 4 headlines:
Live coverage: Delta 4-Heavy countdown and launch journal
Live coverage: Commercial Proton launch delayed 24 hours
Launch of next space station crew moved to July
Ariane 5 launch delayed to replace cryogenic fluid connector

(not sure if this is considered off topic for this thread, if it's OT feel free to delete).
