Test Flight From NASA On Thursday
A test flight of a NASA Terrier suborbital rocket motor will be conducted between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8 from the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, officials announced.
The backup launch days are Sept. 9 and 10.
The rocket will only be visible in the Wallops area. The NASA Visitor Center will open at 8:30 a.m. on launch day for viewing the launch.
This launch will not be webcast since the Terrier motor burn will be visible for only 6 seconds, according to officials.
Launch status is available on the Wallops launch status line at (757) 824-2050.
