Bad Weather Delays Launch Test of NASA’s New Rocket

Bad weather and a series of unlucky events thwarted repeated attempts by NASA to launch the prototype Ares I-X rocket on a test flight Tuesday.
Launch teams tried to launch the rocket several times over the course of four hours, but clouds, winds and the threat of rain prevented the flight. NASA’s next chance to launch the untested rocket comes Wednesday.
“We had some opportunities, we just didn’t get there – the weather didn’t cooperate,” said launch director Ed Mango.
