Officially Cygnus OA-8 (enhanced version) with 3.7 t of payload will be launched tomorrow from same pad at 12:14 UTC.

The rocket was originally scheduled to launch at 7 a.m. on Saturday, November 11. FAA is investigating the incident.

"We have confirmed that the aircraft that aborted today's launch attempt was a small aircraft flying at about 500ft approximately 6 miles offshore", according to the space agency's Twitter account for the Orbital ATK. "We are now de-tanking and will be ready to go tomorrow morning".

It'll be taking 7,500 pounds of cargo to the International Space Station.

Here's what the NASA's Wallops Flight Facility says for us in Richmond. Live NASA TV coverage and commentary will begin at 7 a.m., and Wallops will play live views of the launch pad on Ustream beginning at 1:15 a.m.

The attached cargo ship will help researchers conduct studies on how space's microgravity affects the E.coli bacteria's resistance to antibiotics, and another NASA experiment will test feasibility of faster communications between people in space and on earth.

If the October 2016 Antares launch at Wallops marked a litany of firsts, Saturday-turned-Sunday's is checking off a series of seconds: the second use for Orbital's RD-181 engines, the second flight since the program's resurrection in the wake of an October 2014 rocket explosion, the company's second launch of the year (the other taking place at Florida's Cape Canaveral). Orbital ATK will soon pass into the hands of defense contractor giant Northrop Grumman which has bought it for about $7.8 billion.
