#1 There is no truth to the rumor that NASA is considering renaming the rover to Whenever. And it certainly won't be called Launchy McLaunchFace.

#2 It can't be that serious a setback if they're delaying it by less than a month. In NASA time, that's barely a few minutes. A real delay would be for five to eight years, with a budget increase of ten to twelve billion dollars.

#3 Well, to get to Mars, they have a window that, should they miss it, will result in a long wait.
