According to recently published reports, NASA has once again scrubbed the launch of rocket from the Eastern Shore of Virginia. NASA made public a statement that it decided to postpone the launch of SubTec-6 once again due to poor scientific conditions and boats in that in the hazard area.
NASA tried to launch the rocket over the weekend also, but couldn’t succeed due to the same reasons. The objective of the launch of SubTec-6 as per told by the experts is to test a deployment system for the formation of vapor clouds. Along with the formation of vapour clouds, NASA also wants to form various new suborbital rocket technologies which can be used for the benefit of everyone.
The rocket launch at Wallops will also test a new and inexpensive solution system and a mini deployment actuator for cubesat spacecraft, the spacecraft that will be used to put a digital scrapbook on Mars. This is the third time that NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia cancelled lift-off. This time it was out of concern for boaters who had unknowingly wandered into the launch’s ‘hazard zone’.
According to YottaFire, the Wallops facility announced the cancellation via their Facebook and Twitter accounts. This disappointed many fans who were ready to watch live in-person or streaming online.
“We fully understand the disappointment of not seeing the launch take place; however we must always take in account public safety, we greatly appreciate the marine traffic working with us, as we know and appreciate the importance of their work,” Wallops public relations wrote.
Scientists will try to launch the rocket on Tuesday, July 1, between 4 and 5 a.m. To view the launch live, visit the NASA website, beginning at 3 a.m.
