Antares Launch Attempt : NASA Wallops

Monday’s launch attempt was scrubbed at the last minute due to a sailboat in the safety range area. ┬áThis first photo (5sec exposure) includes the International Space Station passing over the launch pad, minutes after the scrub – no accident, as orbital geometry and physics demand that Antares’ launch is perfectly coordinated with the ISS orbit.Wallops Antares Wallops Antares Wallops Antares Wallops Antares
