The LRO launch window is currently in flux due to the slip of the Space Shuttle Endeavor launch. LRO is currently set for launch on the 18th, with a possible launch window of the 18th to 20th.
The Space Shuttle is now scheduled for launch on Wednesday 5:40AM, leaving LRO with a launch window June 18 to 20. Should the Space Shuttle countdown continue past midnight (EDT) tonight the LRO launch window will automatically slip to June 19.
Summarized: If the Shuttle scrubs before midnight, LRO has a chance for a Thursday launch. If the Shuttle count goes past midnight tonight (Tuesday), the LRO window will slip to Friday evening.
