ULA Update: OCO-2 Scrub Statement

Status Report From: United Launch Alliance
Posted: Tuesday, 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.
