The launch of a new rocket from Vandenberg Air Force base has been rescheduled for a second time.
The Minotaur IV spacelift booster launch has been delayed once again due to poor weather conditions. It's now scheduled to launch Thursday, anytime between noon and 6:00p.m.
The rocket will release a new gliding air vehicle, called the HTV-2. The HTV-2 will then glide within the earth's atmosphere, and into a broad-ocean area near the Reagan Test Site in Kwajalein Atoll, in the Marshall Islands. The military says it will help its researchers learn about long-duration hypersonic vehicle flight.
