NASA has postponed the launch attempt from the Wallops Flight Facility of two suborbital sounding rockets scheduled for Thursday, July 14. The postponement is to allow the project team time review the weather launch commit criteria.

The Black Brant V and Terrier-Improved Orion will carry experiments to study the ionosphere. Today’s scheduled attempt was canceled to provide the launch team time to prepare and test the launch vehicles and payloads.

The next attempt is no earlier than Friday, July 15, between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
