Cape Canaveral, Fla. (UPI) Jun 2, 2008
The U.S. space agency has scheduled Thursday for the launch of its Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said GLAST will be launched aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket. The launch window extends from 11:45 a.m. to 1:40 p.m. EDT daily through Aug. 7.

The GLAST liftoff date, originally set for Tuesday, was rescheduled to allow the launch team sufficient time to make sure remaining engineering issues are resolved, NASA said.
