The planned launch of a satellite from Santa Barbara County early Tuesday morning was scrubbed due to a technical issue.

A Delta II rocket was just minutes from launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base when the liftoff was placed on hold.  Because there was a short, 62 second launch window beginning at 1:47 a.m., and not enough time to resolve the issue, the flight was postponed. 

It’s a “go” as of right now for the launch of a next generation weather satellite from Santa Barbara County.

A Delta II rocket carrying the satellite is scheduled to lift off from Vandenberg Air Force base at 1:47 a.m. Tuesday morning. If the weather conditions are clear, the takeoff should be visible along the Central and South Coasts.

The JPSS-1 satellite being launched into orbit is one in a series intended to improve the accuracy of weather forecasting.

Astronomers first detected these so-called fast radio bursts in 2007. Until now, all 16 FRBs that have been reported have been found by combing through archival data.
