Orion launch postponed, moved to Friday
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (WHNT) – Thursday’s launch of the Orion spacecraft was postponed at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The launch window opened at 6:05 a.m. but several weather and technical delays held off the launch.
Wind originally delayed the launch, but fuel and drain valves that did not close on a booster core ultimately stopped the mission from proceeding.
NASA officials say there will be another opportunity to launch Friday. The window opens at 6:05 a.m.
