      Antares Launch Update

      Thu, 18 Apr 2013 06:34:56 PM EDT

      Orbital has confirmed the next opportunity to test launch its Antares
      rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia will be no earlier
      than 5 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 20.

      NASA TV coverage of the launch will begin at 4:30 p.m. By the time
      coverage starts, the launch window will likely have been reduced to 10-15
      minutes.

      An attempt Friday was called off after review of the weather forecast.
      The forecast for Saturday indicates an 85 percent chance of favorable
      conditions. If needed, a back-up launch opportunity is available on Sunday.
