Dear discuss-lfm members,

Mars Pathfinder Launch Scrubbed Again; Next Try Dec. 4

A software problem in a computer on the ground delayed the launch of 
Mars Pathfinder for one more day.  The next launch attempt will be at 
1:58 a.m. EST on Dec. 4. Mars Pathfinder will carry a six-wheeled rover
that will explore the Martian surface. The launch slip will not affect 
the spacecraft's arrival date at Mars: July 4, 1997.

Looks like we set our VCR's one more time!
