Planned Satellite Launch From Central Coast Again Postponed
There’s yet another delay in efforts to launch a satellite from the Central Coast.
United Launch Alliance had originally planned to launch the WordView-4 satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base September 16th. A small fuel leak postponed the launch, and then a major brush fire on the base pushed it all the way back to November 6th. Now, there’s word that a minor issue with the satellite’s booster will mean another minor delay, from the 6th to the 11th.
The satellite will provide advanced new earth imaging capacity for military and civilian uses.
