I thought I'd be posting a report today on private firm Orbital Sciences' Antares test launch from NASA's Wallops Island, VA (WHERE?) facility. The mission got scrubbed however; maybe 48 hrs for a re-try.

Wallops Island is on the Eastern Shore of VA, very near me. I've been to Chincoteague, VA a few times and driven right around the Wallops Island base to get there. It's in the middle of a swamp, actually. They've been launching smaller rockets there for decades, but this is the first big one.


So, ultimately, no science today.
