NOTTINGHAM, MD—Maryland residents will get a second chance—on a clearer night—to view a rescheduled rocket launch.
The ground support equipment problem that scrubbed Thursday night’s Antares rocket launch from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility just before liftoff has been resolved.
The launch has been rescheduled for Friday night. The 5-minute launch window opens at 9:16 p.m. ET.
Northrop Grumman is coordinating the launch, which will deliver nearly 8,000 lbs. (3,600 kilograms) of supplies, marking the company’s 14th resupply mission to the International Space Station for NASA, according to Space.com.
Live coverage of the mission countdown can be viewed on the Wallops Ustream site.
