The launch of Taylor University’s satellite has been postponed. NASA officials say an issue with the spacecraft vehicle designed to carry the small satellite has led to a delay in the launch scheduled for Sunday.
The launch was part of a NASA program where Taylor’s CubeSat was chosen from 33 designs nationwide. The satellite was to travel aboard a rocket built by SpaceX with other small satellites as part of their nanosatellite program.
NASA officials say the launch could still take place at the end of the month but the new date has not yet been confirmed.
