CYGNSS Launch Scrubbed for Today
Posted on December 12, 2016 at 9:04 am by Anna Heiney.

Today's launch of NASA's CYGNSS spacecraft has been scrubbed due to problems with the hydraulic pump that controls the release of the Orbital ATK Pegasus XL rocket from the L-1011 carrier aircraft. The problem was isolated to a problem with a circuit breaker associated with three-phase power to the release mechanism.

The aircraft is on its way back with the Pegasus XL rocket still safely attached.
