Greetings from SLC-37B: United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV rocket is scheduled to launch the WGS-10 satellite for the U.S. Air Force at 6:56 P.M. this evening. It feels like a good day to go to space!

Per the time in the count they just called out over the net (T-3hrs 20mins), we are 15-ish minutes behind (there's still a hold at T-4 mins) and will not make the opening of the launch window.  Expect launch time to shift about 15mins.

Two red line monitor trips just now. Haz Gas samples were "too high" by 5%.  Didn't catch exactly what it was.  Anomaly Team convened.
