Webcast now scheduled to start at 7:25 according to the ULA-homepage

Launch at 7:41

ULA: Launch still targeting 00:33.

Don't know why they changed the times on the HP...it's definetly confusing...

IIRC, those were the times for one of the scrubbed launch attempts.

Someone's in the "anomaly channel"?

Heard 'troubleshooting'...

Impressive beast, indeed. Too bad this is a night launch again. The maiden flight was spectacular daylight footage.

EDIT: Is it me, or is the narrator in the flight profile clip now showing the Atlas "This is... Atlas mission control at T-10" guy?

MEQ-A, seems like a mechanical problem being talked about on the anomaly channel.

Always looks rediculously danagerous with the flame riding up the stack at launch. Would that even be safe for a manned launch?
