Orbital OTK rescheduled Saturday's Antares rocket launch after another aircraft flew into restricted airspace near NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The rocket was originally scheduled to launch at 7 a.m. on Saturday, November 11.

The Antares rocket, fresh off being raised vertically early Friday morning, awaits launch set for Saturday, Nov. 11.

United Airlines cancels Delhi flights due to air quality
One Delhi official said that the pollution is so bad that the city has turned into a "gas chamber". United operates 267-seat Boeing 777 aircraft on the route, with a journey time of over 14 hours.

The mission is a part of Orbital ATK's Commercial Resupply Services with NASA. 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. It attributed the delay to a "small aircraft" spotted flying at 500 feet about six miles offshore.

NASA says it will try again at 6:14 a.m. Sunday. "We are now de-tanking and will be ready to go (Sunday) morning".

Should skies remain clear, it was predicted the rocket launched would be seen from as far north as Boston to as far south as SC. And it may go down as one of the last to bear the familiar Orbital logo.
