Cape Canaveral, Flat. – The United Launch Alliance (ULA) has delayed the launch of its Delta Ivy Heavy NRL-44 mission for the third time in two days.
The space company said that while the rocket is ready to launch, they are taking extra precautions to ensure that all issues are addressed with the swing arm recreation system.
The launch will now reportedly take place on Tuesday, September 29, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The exact time of the lift off has not yet been announced.
This is the third time the launch has been postponed, as it was originally scheduled for Sunday, then Monday and now Tuesday.
Tuesday marks the same day that SpaceX plans to launch the US Air Force’s fourth third-generation navigation satellite for the Global Positioning System. This mission has also been suspended several times since last year.
SpaceX has two launches planned for this coming week. FOX 35 has arrived to see if the ULA delay will affect their launch shade.
