 Virgin Earthwinds, one of the great aviation challenges left to man


Feb. 13 launch date postponed by forecasts of bad weather from the Loral Airdock in Akron, Ohio. The launch is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 14 between 4 and 6 a.m. EST (weather permitting).
 Whenever the launch takes place, ESPN plans to interrupt its regularly scheduled programming, and televise it live. Sharlene Hawkes will host the half-hour program and the network's daily updates concerning the flight's progress on "SportsCenter," the network's sports news program.
 Also providing commentary will be Tim Lachenmeier and "SportsCenter's" Bill Patrick.
