Orbit Flight Now Slated On Thursday CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) Astronaut Scott Carpenter relaxed IT. the sun Sunday but technicians kept working to repair the space craft scheduled to blast him three times around the globe Thursday. There were reports the latest troubles in Carpenter's space machine — disclosed Saturday — might force a delay beyond the Thursday date, but both civilian space agency spokesmen and informed technical sources indicated the repair work was progressing well under a round the clock effort by a team of technicians. They expressed confidence they could hold to the present launch timetable if no new snags develop. The weather, which must be near perfect for the flight, was reported improving slowly. The space agency said that repair work has been completed on the parachute system of Carpenter's Aurora 7 spacecraft which caused one delay last week. A spokesman said parts had been flown in to replace the temperature control device which forced the latest delay Saturday.
