PSAS/ news/ 2002-08-01 - Announcement: 8/3 launch canceled due to fire danger

The PSAS has officially scrubbed (canceled) the August 3-4, 2002 launch in Brothers, Oregon due to fire danger.

Despite planning on taking precautions (such as reducing launch team to a skeleton, having a 200gal water pump trailer, etc), we feel that the fire risk is just too great.

As discussed earlier, this means the next launch will be September 20-22, 2002 in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada at "BALLS 2002".
