PharmaSat launch, etc.

Ames director Pete Worden reports via Twitter that the Minotaur launch with PharmaSat was scrubbed for weather and may be scrubbed tomorrow, too.
Today's other launch, a Delta 2 from Vandenberg with a Missile Defense Agency payload, was launched on schedule at 2024GMT and looking good.
COMMENT: I can't remember the last time the US scheduled two orbital launches on the same day. It used to happen in the Sixties, but that's all I remember.
