“We really don’t know until we do the wet dress rehearsal how much additional time it will take to get ready to launch,” Whitmeyer said. “We hope it won’t be a significant amount of time but really the purpose of the wet dress rehearsal is to see how the vehicle performs in an integrated fashion ... I just want to be clear that we we really want to see the results of that test before we can kind of be able to really predict with a good amount of confidence the period of time before we launch.”With a March launch out the window, the next opportunities NASA is looking at are from April 8-23 and May 7-21. If it delays further, the next windows are June 6-16 and June 29-July 12.
