caption: is this the way of the future for bad news?
I get RSS feeds from NASA, am on pretty much all the agency's email alerts and over an hour after this tweet went up (at 1640h Thursday 11 May) there is still nothing on the website or in my Google reader or in my email inbox. The URL in the tweet goes to a NASA webpage that has a description of MLAS and gives 15 June as trhe launch date
Just a week ago NASA announced the MLAS launch would take place on 15 June and now it is to occur on 20 June. It seems tweets is the new way of getting out not so good news
Read NASA's background on MLAS here and Hyperbola's previous blog postings about previous MLAS launch target dates in May and March this year here
