Launch Scrubbed

Tonight’s launch attempt of NASA commercial cargo provider Northrop Grumman’s  14th resupply mission to the International Space Station has been scrubbed.

The next potential launch opportunity for Northrop Grumman’s Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus cargo spacecraft would be Friday, Oct. 2, at 9:16 p.m. EDT from Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The latest Wallops Launch Range forecast puts weather for a Friday attempt at 90% favorable. At this time, the main weather concern for Friday evening will be a very slight chance of cloud ceilings.

A Friday launch would air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website beginning at 8:45 p.m. EDT.

  1. Disappointed with lauch scrub .
    But never mind i may get to see it yet .
    Would be my first live launch since i saw apollo 11 launch as a child .
    Happy trails guys good luck for new launch.

  2. CRS-14 launch scrubbed due to ????. Looking for the cause. Can’t seemed to find one, not on NASA’s web site, nor Northrop Grumman’s.

  3. While listening to the live launch we heard a women controller report the wrong button was pushed and administration was notified. Following that statement, the launch was postponed, then A report followed that a boat was in the launch zone, then an automated scrub at 2.21 minutes. Sounds like the human performance event had a significant impact that was addressed “as a boat in the launch zone”.
