VANDENBERG SPACE FORCE BASE, Calif.– NASA and the United Launch Alliance delayed the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Atlas 401 rocket launch to Thursday, Nov. 10 at 1:25 a.m.
The launch, originally scheduled for Nov. 1, was delayed due to a mechanical error on the day of liftoff.
NOAA’S Joint Polar Satellite System 2-civilian polar-orbiting weather satellite onboard the rocket was in need of a battery replacement before it will be safe and cleared for departure.
Originally the launch was scheduled for Tuesday between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m.. The launch window has now been moved to Nov. 10 if weather permits.
