Jacksonville FL — Weather conditions on Wednesday caused the historic launch of two Americans from American soil in nearly a decade to get pushed back to Saturday, and as Space X and NASA get ready for another launch attempt, professor of physics and astronomy at Jacksonville University, Terry Ellis says weather is expected to be a big factor again. She says its not just the weather in Cape Canaveral they have to worry about, it's also the weather elsewhere.
“If they launched but then had to abort, um, they had some potential landing sites off of Newfoundland and off of, uh, Ireland.” Ellis says.
She says all three of those sites have to have decent weather for there to be a launch.
Space X says the next launch attempt will be at 3:22 this Saturday, and if that launch gets scrubbed, they will try again Sunday at 3PM.
Once the launch happens you'll be able to listen to it live on 104.5 FM and in the free WOKV app.
