Rocket launch scheduled for Sunday morning

NASA created a handy map that charts where the rocket will be visible on the horizon after its launch - and when. But it was scrubbed after NASA said an aircraft flew into the restricted area.

The space station re-supply mission Sunday morning could be visible from Richmond 90 seconds after liftoff!

The S.S. Gene Cernan Cygnus will launch aboard an Antares launch vehicle for the sixth time from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia to deliver vital supplies and scientific equipment to the station as part of the space company's Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract with NASA.

Sunday's launch will be Orbital ATK's fourth ISS resupply mission. It attributed the delay to a "small aircraft" spotted flying at 500 feet about six miles offshore.

Orbital ATK tweeted: "We were working no issues until an aircraft flew into restricted airspace". "We are now de-tanking and will be ready to go (Sunday) morning". Live launch coverage will begin at 7 a.m. on NASA Television and the agency's website.

Disneyland shuts down cooling towers after Legionnaires' outbreak
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chief Medical Officer Pamela Hymel said Disney conducted more tests on all of their water towers. It typically strikes the elderly and people with compromised immune systems, and can be fatal, according to the Mayo Clinic .

The Orbital ATK Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus cargo spacecraft will now attempt to blast off on Sunday at 7:14 a.m. EST, according to a statement from NASA.

It was cold even by the standards of rocket science.

Should skies remain clear, it was predicted the rocket launched would be seen from as far north as Boston to as far south as SC.

The public is also welcome to view the blastoff up close at the NASA Visitor Center at Wallops or online via NASA TV.

In September, competitor Northrup Grumman announced plans to buy Orbital for $7.8 billion.
