LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Southland was deprived of Wednesday on an airspace light show, as planned rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County was scrubbed for the fourth time.

The United Launch Alliance rally that had a voltage satellite had been set at 5:44. The launch was delayed first by five minutes, then it was fully harvested for 10 minutes to start.

The ULA did not immediately give an official reason for the delay. Spaceflight Now reported that the scrub was caused by a suspected weather leak in the port Booster Engine part of the Delta IV Heavy racket.

The launch was reset preliminarily for 5:31 p.m. Thursday.

Wednesday every fourth time the mission has been delayed. On Tuesday night a planned launch was harvested due to high winds. On December 8, the launch was only 7.5 seconds ahead of the planned run due to a technical disruption. An operational problem had caused a delay in launch one day before that.

Launches from Vandenberg, especially those performed after sunset, usually create impressive light from the air across southern California and the southwest.

Delta IV Heavy rocket will carry a secret satellite to the US National Reconnaissance Office.

“ We are proud to launch this critical payload to support our country’s national security mission, & # 39; Gary Wentz, ULA Vice President of Government and Commercial Programs, said in a statement before the two delays. “ As the nation’s premier launch supplier, the law has worked extensively to ensure continued mission success and delivers the customer’s payload to the exact bands requested. & # 39; & # 39;

According to the company, Delta IV Heavy rocket includes three Rocket Dyne Liquid Hydrogen / Liquid Acid Motors that can produce a combined 2.1 million pound impact.

ULA has completed 27 launches to the National Reconnaissance Office for the past 12 years.
