Looking forward to Wednesday’s launch of the Antares, tomorrow we (media) get to set remote camera feeds for near pad video and pictures. I get to take a selfie with a spaceship! Totally looking forward to this adventure. I will have pictures and videos for you all by Wednesday evening so long as all goes to plan.
There is a 10% chance the launch sill scrub until Thursday, yesterday that was 15% so it is looking better and better. NASA … “Wallops and Virginia’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport are set to support the launch of the Antares rocket, carrying the company’s Cygnus cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station at 4:46 p.m. EDT, April 17. “

If you get the chance head down to the Wallops area and check out the launch, take the kids. This is the most educational thing you could blow off school for with the whole family.

Launch On!
