EXPENDABLE LAUNCH VEHICLE STATUS REPORT

Spacecraft: Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-P)
Launch Vehicle: Delta IV
Launch Pad:  Complex 37, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station
Launch Date:  March 2, 2010
Launch Window: 6:19 - 7:19 p.m. EST 

Due to weather, rollout of the GOES-P satellite from the Astrotech 
payload processing facility to Launch Complex 37 was postponed one 
day to Feb. 13. The spacecraft was hoisted atop the Delta IV rocket 
on Feb. 14. An interface verification test to check the connections 
between GOES-P and the Delta IV was conducted on Feb. 18.

The launch has been rescheduled to March 2 to allow sufficient time to 
complete scheduled work that was slowed by the weather. The Flight 
Readiness Review will be held on Feb. 25.

GOES-P will be launched into orbit for NASA and NOAA by Boeing Launch 
Services aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta IV rocket under an FAA 
license.
