Aircraft overhead forces Orbital to cancel cargo launch

Space Delivery Astronauts Get Ice Cream Make Own Pizzas

The International Space Station is getting a delivery shipped from Virginia for a change. The rocket was originally scheduled to launch at 7 a.m. on Saturday, November 11.

Under a almost cloudless sky and after a almost flawless countdown, and having a "GO" from all the flight controllers, the launch was immediately scrubbed with less than 2 minutes remaining in the count when an aircraft entered the hazard zone.

The load will be launched by the company Orbital ATK on one of its Cygnus spacecraft and will reach orbit to meet up with the ISS orbiting the Earth about 200 miles above the planet.

Crews aboard ISS will use a robotic arm to "capture" the spacecraft after it detaches from the rocket.

"Bacterial antibiotic resistance may pose a danger to astronauts in microgravity, where the immune response is weakened", NASA said. The results may end up revealing information that could lead to the development of proper dosage and treatments for astronaut health, according to NASA. The Integrated Solar Array and Reflectarray Antenna is a hybrid solar panel and solar antenna for communication over far away spaces.

The launch may be hard to see from farther away since it is happening during the day.

NASA will livestream mission coverage starting at 1:15 a.m. and launch coverage at 7 a.m.

If the launch of the "Cygnus" will happen on the ISS, it will arrive on Monday. As with Saturday's attempt, NASA TV will live-stream the event at www.nasa.gov/nasatv. The visitor center is set to open at 3:30 a.m. EST on Saturday.

The launch of an Orbital ATK Antares rocket from NASA's Wallops Island Flight Facility in Virginia is scheduled for 7:37 a.m. Saturday, and, weather permitting, will be visible from CT to North Carolina.

Major launches of this type can be visible across the entire region, but they do not happen often.
