WASHINGTON & BRUSSELS - A joint venture between NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) has been delayed because it's 'kinda like ritualistic'.

The rocket was supposed to launch at 2.30pm GMT yesterday at the Florida base, carrying a payload of the latest Galileo satellite for help with directing GPS signals.

However, it was delayed until the 3rd of April.

"Everything was on schedule," said Prof. Harber Bosch, "the fuel was ready, it [the satellite] was ready, all personell were present and ready. Bur it just weasn't right to do this launch on time. It felt wrong, nearly. Amoral."

Many higher-ups at NASA and ESA said that it was a 'great service to America and to Europe' to follow a 'rite of passage set down in previous aerospace missions by our learned forefathers'.

Already the Chinese space agency are set to delay the launch of Loozir One, a shuttle to send their first actual willing manned mission into space, by 23 months and 6 days.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
