Three rockets scheduled for Monday launch at Wallops Flight Facility
- February 19, 2015
Three rockets are scheduled for launch early Monday at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
The Terrier-Oriole suborbital rockets, which are involved in a Department of Defense mission, will blast off between 12:30 and 4:30 a.m.
The rockets are scheduled to launch within a one-minute period and may be visible to residents in the mid-Atlantic region. The back-up launch dates are Feb. 24 through 27.
At the request of DoD project managers, no real-time launch status updates will be available. The launches will not be shown live on the Internet nor will launch status updates be provided on social media once the countdown begins.
The NASA Visitor Center at Wallops will not be open for viewing the launches.
