NASA Sounding Rocket Launch Set for Tomorrow Night
The Wallops Flight facility has cancelled the launch of a sounding rocket today.
But it has rescheduled it for tomorrow.
The recent stormy weather from Hurricane Joaquin forced the NASA facility to delay the launch.
The suborbital Black Brant IX sounding rocket will take off between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. tomorrow night.
And it should be visible to residents in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the launch will be testing the Black Brant motor in a two stage rocket.
In addition NASA will be trying out a new fabricating method for payloads.
Orbital ATK is a private contractor that launches resupply missions to the International Space Station at Wallops Flight Facility.
