The TOPEX (Ocean Topography Experiment) spacecraft, originally scheduled for a 1989 launch, has now been rescheduled for launch in October 1990. Budgetary pressures are cited as the primary reason for the 20-month launch delay. The new launch date hinges on the administration giving the mission the green light in the Fiscal Year (FY) 1986 budget, which is expected to be released in early February.
