Posted: Updated:

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - Another rocket is scheduled to launch from Wallops Island in the near future.

On Tuesday, November 19th, at 7:30 PM, a United States Air Force Minotaur I rocket will lift-off from Pad-0B at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. Officials say their launch window is between 7:30 and 9:30 PM, and their backup date is November 26th.

The Minotaur will launch the Air Force's Operationally Responsive Space Office's ORS-3 mission, which features the deployment of 29 satellites in space.
