Launch rescheduled again of ASU-built satellite
A satellite built by Arizona State University students that was scheduled for launch last Friday didn't make it off the ground.
The launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in central California was canceled because the rocket's flight computer failed to start.
A second attempt was aborted because battery levels were low.
The Air Force is now hoping to launch the rocket Wednesday. It is carrying four payloads, including ASUSat1, built by 400 ASU students over the past six years.
