Will the Black Brant XII Rocket ever launch?
After having to scrub four previous launch attempts, it is once again set to take off from the Wallops Flight Facility no earlier than 7:59 Wednesday night, with a launch window until 8:53 p.m.
The rocket may be visible from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River as it thunders overhead.
Black Brant XII, carrying the KiNET-X payload, is a four-stage sounding rocket that can reach altitudes over 200 miles above Earth’s surface, according to NASA Wallops Flight Facility.
NASA Wallops Visitor Center will not be open for viewing, but you can watch the launch live, with coverage starting at about 7:40 p.m.
