DART Spacecraft Oct 26 Launch Scrubbed; Next Opportunities Are Oct 28 and Nov 4

2004 Oct 26

Todays planned launch of the first spacecraft with an Ecliptic RocketCamâ„¢ video system on board, DART, was scrubbed due to concerns over the local weather and technical issues with DART's Earth-orbiting target satellite, MUBLCOM. The launch was scheduled for 11:15 a.m. PDT today by a Pegasus XL winged rocket off the California coast near Vandenberg Air Force Base.

Real-time online coverage of the launch, rendezvous and proximity operations events by Justin Ray is available at Spaceflight Now.
