UPDATED 11/06/22 5:40am – This morning’s launch of the Antares has been scrubbed because of a fire alarm going on in the Northrop Grumman Dulles facility, which has caused an evacuation of the building. They will attempt launch Monday morning at 5:27am


There will be a launch of an Antares rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility on Sunday morning. The launch is set for 5:50am and is a resupply mission headed to the International Space Station. The Antares is loaded with 8200 pounds of crew supplies and station hardware – including new microgravity experiments that will benefit humans on and off the Earth.

If you want to see it at Wallops – the Visitor Center grounds in Virginia will open at 3:30am – but remember space at the visitors center is limited! You can also watch the launch on the NASA Wallops Facebook page or on NASA TV at NASA.gov.
