Atlas V rocket blasts off carrying supplies to space station
CAPE CANAVERAL — An Atlas V rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Sunday afternoon carrying a Cygnus cargo spacecraft bound for the International Space Station.
High winds and rain had pushed the launch back three times since Thursday’s initial try. After scrubs during launch windows on Thursday and Friday, managers looking at only a 20% chance of good conditions Saturday decided in early afternoon to halt the countdown before fueling the United Launch Alliance rocket, opting to give crews some rest and wait for better weather to come.
