NASA Scrubs Rocket Launch From Wallops

Posted: Updated:

WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - Rocket fans will have to wait, again, after this morning's launch was postponed at Wallops Island.

It's the third delay in a row for the Sub-Tec 6 rocket. Officials say boats in the hazard area and "poor science conditions" put a stop to the launch today. They hope to countdown tomorrow morning between 4 and 5 AM.

The Sub-Tec 6 will reportedly test a deployment system for forming vapor clouds and other new suborbital rocket technologies. You can watch the launch online, on NASA's website.
