|Weather scrubs launch of robot space plane|
5 March 2011
The Florida launch of the U.S. Air Force’s secret X-37B space plane was canceled
Friday due to weather with another attempt set for Saturday, officials said.
The unmanned mini-shuttle, dubbed Orbital Test Vehicle 2, was supposed to launch
from Cape Canaveral at 3:50 p.m. Friday atop an Atlas 5 rocket, but cloudy and windy
conditions caused officials to scrub the attempt.
