NASA Wallops Postpones Rocket Launch

Posted: Updated:

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - High level clouds and boats too close to the launch pad made NASA Wallops scrub Monday's rocket launch.

The project, which is called the Daytime Dynamo experiment is designed to study a global electrical current called the dynamo in the ionosphere. NASA Wallops officials say the project will launch two rockets, a Black Brant V and a Terrier-Improved Orion.  Both will launch 15-seconds apart in support of the Daytime Dynamo experiment, which is a joint project between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, or JAXA.

According to NASA Wallops, this current plays a vital role in our daily lives and deals with radio and communication signals.

The next date to launch is scheduled for Tuesday morning with a timeframe between 9:30-11:30 AM.
