Due to a weather forecast of extreme cold and precipitation for Tuesday, NASA has decided to delay the launch of Orbital Sciences’ Antares rocket and Cygnus spacecraft to Wednesday, but the more likely launch date is Thursday, when the weather is expected to improve. When Antares launches from the Wallops Flight Facility to the ISS, it will carry a BioServe Space Technologies experiment that will examine the effectiveness of antibiotic drugs on E. coli bacteria in space. If the rocket lifts off Wednesday, the window will be from 1:32-1:37 p.m., and if Thursday, the window is from 1:10-1:15 p.m. (Image Credit: NASA)
