Editor's Note: NASA Astronaut Warren “Woody” Hoburg, who started as a Student Rocketeer, is one of four astronauts to launch for a mission to the International Space Station (ISS), in a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft. The other astronauts in this SpaceX Crew-6 mission will be NASA Astronaut Stephen Bowen, Russian Cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev, and an astronaut from the United Arab Emirates: Sultan Al Neyadi.

The launch, originally scheduled for early on Monday Morning, 2023 February 27, received a Nominal Launch Scrub just 2 minutes and 14 seconds before launch time, due to a problem with the fluids used to ignite the launch. NASA has decided to re-schedule the launch for early Thursday Morning, 2023 March 2 at 12:34 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) / 5:34 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Woody Hoburg, a native of the North Hills section of Metropolitan Pittsburgh, was a student member of the Tripoli Rocketry Association, one of two major rocketry clubs for high-power model rocketry, in the United States. The Tripoli Rocketry Association was founded on 1964 December 1 in Pittsburgh by Francis G. Graham, now Professor Emeritus of Physics at Kent State University. Early in his career, Professor Graham was a Planetarium and Observatory Lecturer at the original Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science / Buhl Science Center, America's fifth major planetarium and Pittsburgh's science and technology museum from 1939 to 1991.

The author of the article about Woody Hoburg, which can be found at the following Internet link, is Kenneth J. Good, one of the club's early members and former President of the Tripoli Rocketry Association.
