Rocket launch delayed another day

A rocket launch from the US East Coast, which had been delayed until this evening, has been put off because of high winds.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the launch had been rescheduled until tomorrow at 4.21pm Bermuda time.

The rocket will take off from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia carrying a Cygnus cargo ship filled with supplies for the International Space Station.

Nasa reported “strong upper level winds” that kept the craft grounded for another day.
