UPDATE: Antares Launch Rescheduled

Posted: Updated:

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - A rocket launch that was postponed due to issues at the International Space Station, has been rescheduled.

NASA and Orbital Sciences Corp. say the Antares rocket will launch no earlier than Tuesday, January 7th from Wallops Flight Facility in Accomack County. The launch window is between 1:55 and 2:00 PM for that date.

The mission is sending supplies via a Cygnus payload, to the ISS, and officials say the cargo would reach the station by January 10th.

The December 19th launch of Antares was postponed after a pump module on the ISS malfunctioned, and astronauts scheduled spacewalks to repair it.
