Space station launch set in Virginia, 2 years after blast

The launch, originally scheduled for Friday, Oct 14, at 8:51 p.m. EDT, was pushed back to Sunday, Oct 16 at 8:03 p.m. EDT, to avoid any potential impacts from Hurricane Nicole, which is now churning its way northward off the Atlantic coast.

The roll-out of the Antares rocket to the spaceport launch pad is expected on Wednesday.

That is, if Hurricane Nicole - now on course to hit Bermuda on Thursday - gets out of the way in time.

If the weather is clear, the rocket should be visible on the southern horizon moments after liftoff as it boosts supplies to the International Space Station.

Antares hasn't taken off from Wallops since it exploded after takeoff in October 2014.

In addition to understanding what caused the 2014 anomaly, the Antares team has been working on putting two new engines into the Antares' first stage. "The tracking station at Bermuda is required to conduct the Antares launch from Wallops", Steven Kremer, chief of the Wallops Range and Mission Management Office said in a statement. The delivery is part of NASA's Commercial Resupply Services 1 (CRS-1) program; Orbital ATK is one of two companies that hold a contract for CRS-1.

The return-to-flight was originally supposed to occur in June 2016, but delays primarily due to requirements placed by the customer (NASA) pushed the date to this week.

The mission will ferry crew supplies as well as vehicle hardware to the orbiting laboratory to support dozens of science and research investigations. After reaching low-earth orbit, the rocket ejects a cargo-carrying capsule - named Cygnus - which then attaches to the International Space Station. On Sunday evening, Orbital ATK (the name change reflecting a merger with Alliant Techsystems Inc.) will try again, weather- (and other circumstances) permitting.
