NASA Delays Orion Launch

NASA and the United Launch Alliance (ULA) had planned to launch the Delta 4 SLS rocket, carrying the Orion spacecraft this morning. Unfortunately, the mission was postponed due to a variety of factory. The Orion space capsule is intended to carry humans deep into space. Today’s mission however, was completely unmanned. It is intended to test several of the spacecraft’s capabilities which cannon be tested on the ground. NASA will make a second attempt at the launch again tomorrow.
