Woomera delay

The Adelaide, Australia newspaper The Advertiser reports that Rocketplane Kistler has delayed plans to start work on spaceport facilities in Woomera. “Design changes” are blamed for the delay, although it’s not clear from the brief article whether the changes are in the design of the spaceport or in the K-1 vehicle that will fly from there. Work at Woomera was supposed to begin in May. “Things are a little behind but they are still on track,” said Alan Evans, chairman of Rocketplane Kistler Australia. (How can you be a “a little behind” but still be “on track”?)

[A nod to Mark Evans, who flagged the article in a comment to a post last month about Woomera.]
