Updated:CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. —
The rainy weather forced scientists to scrub the launch of a Delta 4 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
The launch team was unable to send up weather balloons to measure high-altitude winds due to lightning, according to SpaceFlightnow.com.
The rocket is expected to carry a new generation Global Positioning System satellite into orbit.
The launch team will try again Friday night at 8:03.
