Watch live tonight! Antares rocket launching NASA cargo on Cygnus spacecraft


By Space.com Staff 25 minutes ago

Liftoff is at 9:38 p.m. EDT (0138 GMT).



On Thursday, Oct. 1, a Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo ship carrying nearly 4 tons of NASA cargo will launch toward the International Space Station from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia.

A Northrop Grumman-built Antares rocket will launch the Cygnus spacecraft on the CRS-14 (or NG-14) mission from Pad OA at Wallops at 9:38 p.m. EDT (0138 GMT). The mission has been delayed from Sept. 29 due to bad weather. NASA's webcast will begin at 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT).

Antares rocket launch for NASA visible along the US East Coast tonight. Here's how to watch.

From NASA:
NASA commercial cargo provider Northrop Grumman is targeting 9:38 p.m. EDT Thursday, Oct. 1, for the launch of its 14th resupply mission to the International Space Station. Live coverage of the launch from Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia, will air on NASA Television and the agency’s website, with prelaunch events Monday, Sept. 28, and Thursday, Oct. 1.

Loaded with nearly 8,000 pounds of research, crew supplies, and hardware, Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus cargo spacecraft will launch on the company’s Antares rocket from Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport.

7. I know. That was weird.

But then again, I will never forget seeing all those crazy boats circling the Dragon capsule (especially the magats with the trump flags) maybe it was one of those idiots, lol.
