NASA, Northrop Grumman Delay Antares Launch To Saturday Written 16 November 2018

Aviation Week reports that NASA and Northrop Grumman have “delayed for a second day the company’s 10th agency contracted resupply mission launch to the International Space Station (ISS) because of high winds and rough seas at the Wallops Island Flight Facility launch site” on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. SPACE reports that the launch of a Northrop Grumman Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus NG-10 cargo vessel will take place early Saturday morning, with the launch window opening at 3:30 a.m. EST. In a statement, NASA officials said that the launch forecast for Saturday is “significantly improved with a less than five percent chance of weather conditions preventing a launch.” If the mission takes place Saturday, Cygnus should arrive at the ISS “early Monday (Nov. 19), when it will be captured by astronauts with a robotic arm and berthed at an open port on the orbiting lab.” (Image Credit: NASA
