Antares launch may be delayed due to the ISS cooling failure

A reader pointed be to this article of Florida today: ISS cooling system problem may delay resupply launch. The Station has lost one of its two ammonia cooling loops and had necessitated the shut-down of some non-essential systems. Spacewalk(s) may be required to fix the problem. I just hope that a delay doesn't move the Antares launch to daylight hours. (Of course, I wish the ISS a speedy recovery, which is more important than me seeing the launch.)
