Once again, the Vandenberg Delta II launch of the next 5 Iridium satellites
was scrubbed today (Tuesday, August 19th) -- this time due to weather. 
(Yesterday's scrub was due to a Motorola ground station problem in Chandler,
AZ).  The launch has been rescheduled for 5:38pm PDT tomorrow (Wednesday,
August 20th) out of VAFB Space Launch Complex 2.  Call Vandenberg at (805)
