SpaceX CRS-5 delayed to 1/10

The launch of the Falcon 9 carrying Dragon to the International Space Station for the CRS-5 mission has been delayed until 4:47 am EST on Saturday 1/10.  The launch was scrubbed on Tuesday with just 90 seconds left in the countdown due to a faulty Z actuator on the second stage.  The actuator which is part of the system that helps control the direction of the stage during firing was drift more than expected.

The launch will be shown live on NASA TV and SpaceX Webcast.
