BLOG: Biggest Launch Ever

History In The Making

Don't be alarmed but a 13-story rocket will be launched into space at 5 p.m. EDT this Wednesday evening, April 17, 2013. This will be the biggest private rocket ever to launch from Virginia's Eastern Shore at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility.

The Antares rocket launch will be visible up and down the east coast for 2-3 minutes but you can also watch it live online at, courtesy of NASA.

If all goes well, the test flight will pave the way for the future unmanned cargo deliveries to the International Space Station. Keep your fingers crossed!
