Falcon 1 On Hold Again After Test Firing

It pains me to report it, but Falcon 1's maiden flight has been delayed once more.

An unspecified issue discovered while analyzing data from the static fired countdown has caused the latest setback. Details are slim at the moment, but SpaceX head man Elon Musk promises details and an updatd launch schedule when available. The rough estimate at this point is two to four weeks additonal delay.

Let's keep our chins up and fingers crossed. Hopefully this alt.space pioneer venture will get off the groud soon enough. The whole world is watching, SpaceBlog Alpha inluded of course...
