>From Mark DeCotis on the CompuServe Florida Today forum:

A Lockheed Martin Atlas I rocket was successfully launched from Cape
Canaveral Air Station at 1:52 a.m. EDT today, carrying a much-needed
GOES-J weather satellite into orbit.

The launch was delayed by 11 minutes as NASA worked to correct a problem
with the launch destruct system on the rocket.

Other than the hold for the Command Receiver problem, the countdown was
smooth.
