Antares launch with PhoneSat’s scrubbed …

20:49 UTC The launch has been canceled for today. :-(

Friday 2100 UTC is the next available launch opportunity for the Orbital Sciences Antares rocket. An umbilical that provides data communications became detached from the second stage in today’s countdown, leaving officials no choice but stop the launch attempt with 12 minutes left on the clock. Friday’s weather outlook, however, calls for windy and stormy conditions.
