NASA scrubs rocket launch because a plane flew too close

The E. coli AntiMicrobial Satellite (EcAMSat) mission was scheduled to launch on Orbital ATK's Cygnus cargo spacecraft on Saturday along with a slew of other science experiments and supplies for the Expedition 53 crew.

The Antares rocket launch was originally scheduled for 7:37 a.m. Saturday.

Sacked Catalan parliament speaker Carme Forcadell freed on bail
The crimes under investigation of Catalan lawmakers are punishable under Spanish law with up to 30 years in prison. Four other lawmakers were to be held until making bail payments of €25,000 bail.

The rocket was expected to carry the Cygnus aircraft into orbit and deliver 7,400 pounds of supplies, equipment and science experiments to the International Space Station.

The mission will be the eighth for Orbital ATK, which has a $1.9bn (£1.44bn) contract with NASA to resupply the ISS over several years. Since the launch window was only for 5 minutes, the lift-off had to be aborted and Orbital ATK rescheduled the Antares launch for approximately at 7:14 a.m. EST on Sunday, Nov. 12.

The culprit, a small personal aircraft that entered the restricted airspace was within a 6 miles (10 kilometers) offshore flying at an altitude of about 500 feet, which could have been risky for the lift-off.

NASA TV will begin coverage at 7 a.m. on the agency website. "We are now de-tanking and will be ready to go (Sunday) morning". If it had fallen to 20 degrees or cooler, engineers may have considered postponing the liftoff to head off the risk of any hardware freezing, an Orbital official said during a Friday press conference. Past launches have met a series of weather delays, but NASA is expecting a 95 percent favorable forecast. And it may go down as one of the last to bear the familiar Orbital logo.
