NASA has had to postpone a rocket launch for the sixth time, after cloud cover meant they couldn’t see what they were meant to be doing. The American space agency has been trying to launch a ‘Terrier-Improved Malemute’ sounding rocket since the 31 May, and the most recent attempt yesterday (12 June) had to be put on ice yet again because of the weather.
Previous attempts have failed because of high winds, more clouds, and rogue boats sailing through the hazard area. The launch is an integral part of testing a new multi-canister ejection system that will allow astronomers to study the ionosphere and aurora.
This release will leave blue-green and red vapour trails across the skies, which then allow scientists to track particle motions in space.
