CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - High wind has delayed Northrop Grumman's supply run to the International Space Station. While the weather was OK Friday at Wallops Island, Virginia, upper-level winds exceeded safety limits. The company will try again Saturday afternoon. It will be Northrop Grumman's third attempt in under a week to launch its Antares rocket with a Cygnus capsule on top. Sunday's try was foiled by equipment concerns at the pad, then bad weather moved in. The delivery includes nearly 4 tons of experiments and gear, as well as candy and cheese for the three station astronauts.
