BREVARD COUNTY – KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – United Launch Alliance (ULA) scrubbed Thursday morning’s rocket launch of the Atlas V rocket from Kennedy Space Center due to high ground winds.
New launch date is set for Friday, October 6, with the launch window opening at 4:03 a.m. ET
Coverage for the launch can be seen on Space Coast Daily and Space Coast Daily TV.
The Atlas V rocket was introduced by United Launch Alliance (ULA) in August 2002. The Atlas V was developed to provide launch services to the U.S. government and is a part of the Atlas program which in total has logged more than 600 launches to date. Since their debut, Atlas V vehicles have achieved 100 percent mission success in launches from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, and Space Launch Complex-3E at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. The rocket uses a standard common core booster™ (CCB), up to five strap-on solid rocket boosters (SRB), an upper-stage Centaur in either the Single-Engine Centaur (SEC) or the Dual-Engine Centaur (DEC) configuration, and one of several payload fairings (PLF). The OA-7 mission rocket will fly in 401 vehicle configuration with a four-meter fairing, no solid rocket boosters and a single RL-10C engine for the Centaur upper stage.
