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. The most recent Antares launch took place on the evening of October 17, 2016, and was visible from over 200 miles away.

Lastly, if you're somewhere along the East Coast of the United States during the launch, you might be able to see the rocket heading for the station after it launches from Wallops, if the weather works in your favor.

Iraqi forces launch offensive to recapture last town in Daesh control
Syria's state-run television network reported that government forces and allied fighters had recaptured Boukamal on Thursday.

But an unidentified aircraft ventured into the safety zone surrounding the rocket and its planned trajectory over the Atlantic Ocean.

Those traveling to the Wallops Island area to experience the launch up close should pack a few hand warmers and wear multiple layers to stay warm while waiting for the launch. "Abort, abort, abort. Proceed to the abort safing checklist".

He has since gone on to regain his place as Liverpool's regular left back, and has claimed he is a much better defender now. Already in summer I saw that the season was going to be f***** up and that's how it was.

Just moments before the Antares rocket was to blast off, carrying the Cygnus cargo ship at 7:37 am (1237 GMT), mission control called, "Abort, abort, abort!"

There was no time to wait for the aircraft to clear the the safety box, and managers ordered a scrub. Live launch coverage will begin at 7 a.m. on NASA Television and the agency's website.

Trump's Voter Fraud Commission Is Being Sued by One of Its Commissioners
Last month, Dunlap sent a letter to the commission saying he felt "completely uninformed" about the commission's activities. Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap says he hasn't been receiving information about what the group's doing.

The Antares launch operates under a commercial license issued by Federal Aviation Administration, which oversees the flight to ensure public safety. It's scheduled to arrive at the station early Monday morning. Besides, NASA is preparing a mission to the depths of space, where the health of the astronauts will be more at risk. That heavy payload contains supplies, food, equipment and research for the crew members on the ISS to use over the coming months. The visitor center is set to open at 3:30 a.m. EST on Saturday.
