Launch Delayed
updated: Jul 01, 2014, 8:15 AM

Update: Launch Rescheduled

The following is a statement from the United Launch Alliance, the launch services and vehicle provider for the OCO-2 mission:

Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. (July 1, 2014) – The launch of a United Launch Alliance Delta II carrying NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite was scrubbed today due to an issue with the water suppression system that is used to flow water on the launch pad to dampen the acoustic energy during launch.

Pending the outcome of troubleshooting, the launch is rescheduled for Wednesday, July 2 from Space Launch Complex-2 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The launch time is 2:56 a.m. PDT at the opening of a 30-second window. The forecast for July 2 shows a 100 percent chance of favorable weather conditions for the launch.


This morning's planned launch of a Delta II rocket from Vandenberg AFB was cancelled shortly before liftoff. A new launch date has not been announced, but liftoff could be rescheduled for about 2:56 a.m. PDT on July 2.
