Wallops Island rocket launch postponed

The E. coli AntiMicrobial Satellite (EcAMSat) mission was scheduled to launch on Orbital ATK's Cygnus cargo spacecraft on Saturday along with a slew of other science experiments and supplies for the Expedition 53 crew.

Temperatures at Wallops Island are forecast to be around 30 F on Saturday night ahead of the launch, but temperatures farther inland will drop into the 20s.

Orbital ATK's Antares rocket is set to carry a capsule holding 7,400 pounds of cargo to the International Space Station (ISS), supplying six astronauts with fresh fruit, vegetables, ice cream bars and equipment for experiments.

Live coverage of the launch is set for 7 a.m.

The culprit, a small personal aircraft that entered the restricted airspace was within a 6 miles (10 kilometers) offshore flying at an altitude of about 500 feet, which could have been unsafe for the lift-off. But at the last minute, a plane flew into the restricted airspace at Wallops Island.

IS counter-attack to save last Syria bastion
The report did not elaborate on how the soldiers heard about al-Baghdadi or what they were doing about the information. Boukamal, ISIS's last major stronghold in Syria, was taken on Thursday after ISIS militants withdrew from it.

Otherwise, it was a huge disappointment for more than 3,500 spectators who had gathered at the visitor center at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in freezing-cold to watch the lift-off.

NASA says it will try again at 6:14 a.m. Sunday.

This is Orbital's eighth commercial resupply mission to the ISS under a $1.9 billion contract with NASA. The spacecraft will remain attached to the ISS for one month.

"Bacterial antibiotic resistance may pose a danger to astronauts in microgravity, where the immune response is weakened", NASA said.
