OA-4 Cargo Launch to ISS Postponed a Third Time, Next Attempt Sunday

Weather is not cooperating for the launch of Orbital ATK’s OA-4 cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket. Rain and winds have been the primary factors in the delays. The next attempt is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, December 6, at 4:44:56 pm ET, although the Air Force weather forecast even then is only 40 percent favorable. Monday is a better weather day, with a 70 percent chance of no weather violations.
