Today’s launch attempt of two NASA sounding rockets carrying payloads to study the ionosphere was scrubbed because of cloud cover at one the optical viewing sites set up to view the lithium release from the Terrier-Improved Orion rocket and also because activity in the ionosphere began to diminish. We will try again tomorrow, July 6, with a launch window between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
