WASHINGTON (afp): Orbital Sciences postponed its planned launch of the Cygnus cargo ship toward the International Space Station on Monday due to a boat in the waters near the Virginia launch pad. “Tonight’s launch of the Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus cargo craft has been scrubbed,” a NASA commentator said on the US space agency’s live broadcast. The boat was located inside the rocket’s designated safety range, just to the southeast, and Orbital decided it was too risky to send the rocket soaring overhead.
