NASA Postpones Rocket Launch Due To Weather

UPDATE – NASA scrubs their launch once again Sunday Evening. A launch is scheduled for Monday evening. 


NASA says a mission to explore energy transport in space using a NASA suborbital sounding rocket launching was postponed due to upper level winds not being within the required limits for a safe launch.

The 40 minute launch was expected on Saturday, May 8th around 8 p.m. from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, but is now rescheduled for Monday, May 10th around 8 p.m.

According to NASA, the launch may be visible, weather permitting, in much of the eastern United States from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River.

The Doppler 9&10 Weather Team says Northern Michigan is a great place to see the launch.
