With just about 90 minutes until launch, fueling has begun for Orbital ATK’s Antares rocket, carrying the International Space Station-bound Cygnus cargo spacecraft. The launch window opens at 7:37 a.m. EST.

The latest forecast puts weather at 100-percent favorable for the launch: “zero percent chance for violation.”

  1. HA!
    Have you ever tried to watch a Launch from Wallops? There is no such thing as a ‘zero percent chance for violation’ this
    Place is Home to every kind of Violation possible! Im still a devoted follower but give it a break, please!!

  2. And that pilot who went cruising thru this morning and caused an abort should have his pilot’s license yanked forever. I hope there is a way to id him and that fines are huge.
