Launch Opportunity #3

The weather today looks great today, and we are hopeful that X-Calibur will be launched today. The payload has just been moved out of the hangar. The X-ray pulsar GX 301-2 will be one of the first targets to be observed. The pulsar is in a 41.5 day orbit with WRAY 997, a massive and extremely luminous star. Stand by for updates.
