NASA’s Historic Solar Probe Launch Delayed for 24 Hours

MIAMI – The launch of a NASA solar probe that was expected to become the first craft to touch the outer layers of the Sun was on Saturday delayed for 24 hours.

The Parker Solar Probe was due to launch from Cape Canaveral on Saturday before dawn, but NASA announced just minutes ahead of take-off that the launch limit had been violated and it would be delayed until Sunday morning at 3:31 am local time.

“The launch of a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket carrying the Parker Solar Probe spacecraft was scrubbed today due to a violation of a launch limit, resulting in a hold,” the agency said in a statement.

Weather conditions for Sunday were 60 percent favorable, NASA announced.

The Parker Probe, named after physicist Eugene Parker, is expected to get closer to the Sun than any other aircraft has before.
