Antares rocket launch

Northrop Grumman, one of the most renowned aerospace and defense technology company, has put off the launch of the commercial Cygnus cargo ship to the International Space Station (ISS). The rocket, also built by Northrop Grumman, was set to launch at 5.44 p.m. EST (22:44 GMT). In case of the possibility of delaying the launch for Monday, the weather forecast might fall in some decimals of 20% chances of weather.

Scheduled flight cargo spacecraft Cygnus was to become the second under the new NASA contract with Northrop Gumman Corporation. Considering the unfavorable weather forecast for those following days, as well as the time needed to fix the ground support error, the two companies have made a decision to attempt another launch sometime after February 13th, respectively, at 4.05 p.m. EST (21:05GMT) if the weather permits.

A Northrop Grumman Antares rocket carrying a Cygnus resupply spacecraft is horizontal for the final cargo load on Pad-0A, at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on February 7, 2020. (3,401 kilograms) of supplies, science experiments and other gear to the space station's three-person Expedition 62 crew, NASA officials have said.


The capsule carries equipment for multiple science experiments. For this mission, Northrop Grumman is honoring Major Robert H. Lawrence, the very first African-American astronaut in history.

According to tradition, Northrop Grumman names its Cygnus spacecraft after individuals who played a pivotal part in human spaceflight history. The Cygnus NG-13 spacecraft is named the "S.S. Robert H. Lawrence" to honor the astronaut, who died in a training accident in 1967 before he could launch.
