-----------------------Antares Launch Postponed to Oct. 28
Posted on October 27, 2014 at 6:47 pm

The next launch attempt for Orbital Sciences’ Antares rocket carrying its
Cygnus cargo spacecraft is scheduled for 6:22 p.m. EDT Tuesday, Oct. 28
from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport Pad 0A at NASA’s Wallops Flight
Facility in Virginia. There is a 10 minute launch window. Live coverage on
NASA TV will begin at 5:30 p.m. EDT.

Monday’s launch attempt was scrubbed because of a boat down range in the
trajectory Antares would have flown had it lifted off.

At last report, the weather forecast for Oct. 28 was 95-percent favorable.

Arrival of the Cygnus spacecraft at the International Space Station would
occur Nov. 2.

Should be quite a show from those of us in the mid-Atlantic area.
