[b]Atlas V X-37B OTV-2 launch scrubs, set March 5[/b]
The launch attempt of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V with the Air Force's second Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV-2) was scrubbed Friday for weather. Thick cumulus clouds, which could produce triggered lightning, were within 10 miles of Space Launch Complex 41, violating launch criteria during scheduled launch windows.
The Atlas V vehicle and OTV-2 are safe and secure at this time. The launch is rescheduled for Saturday, March 5 at 4:09 p.m. EST.
The X-37B will provide a flexible space test platform to conduct various experiments and allow satellite sensors, subsystems, components and associated technology to be efficiently transported to and from the space environment where it will need to function.
