See the FUSE launch live on June 24

The Johns Hopkins-built Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer is scheduled for launch from Cape Canaveral Air Station in Florida at 11:39 a.m. EDT on Thursday, June 24. (The previously announced launch date of June 23 was scrubbed because bad weather in Florida delayed launchpad preparations.) If you're in Baltimore, the best way to watch the astronomy satellite's blastoff is at the "Let's Do Launch" event at Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy at the Homewood campus.

Friends of Johns Hopkins astronomy around the world can follow the launch on NASA TV, which is available on many cable TV systems and is also webcast live on the Internet.

Because of weather or other factors, the launch date and time could change. Launch status updates are available at the Florida Today Space Online web site and on the FUSE launch status page. Or, you can listen to the voice mail message at (410) 516-6525.
