Launch Update: Antares launch postponed


Statement from Orbital: Today’s launch of Orbital ATK's Antares rocket is postponed 24 hours due to a ground support equipment (GSE) cable that did not perform as expected during the pre-launch check out. We have spares on hand and rework procedures are in process. The Antares and Cygnus teams are not currently working any technical issues with the rocket or the spacecraft.

The launch is now scheduled for October 17 at 7:40 p.m. EDT.

Get this up already.

They're bricking it. They know full well that if this launch is a failure, Orbital will take their business elsewhere...and rightly so.

Thank you for showing a great picture of the launch area. The only pictures and video WBOC can show is of the old expulsion. Try taking some new video WBOC...
