Delta II rocket fueled for Launch this Morning

A United Launch Alliance rocket with a missile defense satellite is fueled and ready to fly this morning following a two day delay due to weather and a fuel leak underneath the launch pad.

Launch of the Delta II-7920 with the STSS-Demo satellite is expected at 8:20 am EDT today, from launch complex 17-B here at Cape Canaveral, Air Force Station.

The liquid oxygen fuel loading was completed at 7:22 am this morning.
