NASA commercial cargo provider Northrop Grumman is scheduled to launch its next resupply mission to the International Space Station. Following a launch readiness review meeting, the teams are “go” for launch at 9:59 a.m. EDT on Saturday, Nov. 2.
The latest weather forecast stands at 95% favorable for the launch of the company’s Antares rocket from pad 0A at Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. At this time, the only weather concern being tracked is a very slight chance of cloud ceilings for a launch attempt on Saturday morning.
