Due to impending weather from Tropical Depression Eta, we are rolling the Atlas V rocket carrying the NROL-101 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office back to the Vertical Integration Facility (VIF) to secure the payload and vehicle. We are targeting Wed., Nov. 11, at 5:22 p.m. EST for our next launch attempt. The issue with the remotely commanded ground system liquid oxygen valves has been resolved and the rocket and payload are healthy.
