WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. - Anyone waiting to watch the upcoming rocket launch from Wallops Island, is going to have to wait another day.

NASA and Orbital Sciences announced on Wednesday, that their next launch from the Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, will now be on Saturday, July 12th. The launch was initially scheduled for the 11th, but had to be pushed back due to weather conditions that delayed the rollout of the rocket.

The rocket rollout has been rescheduled for Thursday, and launch is set for 1:14 PM on Saturday, with NASA TV coverage starting at 12:30 PM. This rocket will be the second sent from Wallops, to resupply the International Space Station.
