| High Winds Postpone
Historic Launch of
PRIMERA SpaceShot 2002
July 1st, 2002 CSXT (Civilian Space eXploration Team) has
announced that the scheduled launch of its PRIMERA SpaceShot 2002
rocket was postponed due to unacceptably high winds at the Nevada
launch site. The goal of the mission was to launch the world's first
civilian rocket into space.
Winds gusts to 60 MPH were measured at the vehicle's launch tower,
far exceeding the maximum limits set by CSXT and FAA for a precision
launch into space. All flight attempts in the June 26, 27, and 28
launch windows were scrubbed.
Over the next few weeks, CSXT will evaluate its options for a new
launch attempt of its PRIMERA SpaceShot2002 vehicle. As information
becomes available, it will be posted on the CSXT Web site: www.civilianspacet.com.
