The Atlas V rocket that will carry supplies, including the AggieSat4, rests on it’s Launchpad. The launch was delayed due to inclement weather.

Due to poor weather before the launch, Aggieland’s journey to space aboard an Atlas V rocket has been delayed until Saturday at the earliest.

AggieSat Lab has built and developed a small satellite named AggieSat4 whose mission upon being released out of an airlock on the ISS will be to test the rendezvousing capabilities of small satellites. Working with the University of Texas’ Satellite Bevo-2, AggieSat Lab hopes to accomplish a reverse docking maneuver with the UT spacecraft in addition to a number of other objectives.

The satellites are currently aboard an Atlas V rocket that will carry them to the International Space Station as part of a general station resupply mission. The launch scheduled for Thursday at Cape Canaveral was delayed according to Atlas launch control due to multiple weather-related launch rules.
