The forecast of stormy weather prevented rollback of the mobile service gantry and the continuation of the countdown at Cape Canaveral on Wednesday for the United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket. The vehicle will carry the Air Force’s WGS 7 military communications satellite into orbit. Liftoff is rescheduled for Thursday, July 23, at 8:07 p.m. EDT.
