Posted: Updated:

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - The countdown begins for the Antares rocket's first lift off to the International Space Station.

According to Orbital Sciences, the target date for the launch is September 14th, with back up dates up until the 19th. The Antares mission will bring cargo up to the ISS and if this launch is successful, it will allow Orbital and NASA to launch eight more re-supply missions.

Now, reports say that the launch could have happened at the end of August but will be pushed back because of the NASA Wallops LADEE mission to the moon, scheduled for September 6th with the ISS on September 22nd.
