WALLOPS ISLAND, Va.- At NASA Wallops Island, it seems as though third time was the charm on Saturday for the Antares rocket launch.

The launch was scheduled two times before Saturday, but due to issues with a fuel valve and some windy weather, NASA and Northrop Grumman decided to abort the mission.  Saturday, the rocket successfully launched around 3:21 p.m.  47ABC was told there’s about 75-hundred pounds of research, crew supplies and hardware aboard the spacecraft that needed to get to the astronauts at the International Space Station.

A spokesperson told 47ABC that although they had complications with the launches earlier this time it went smoothly.  “We had a couple of attempts earlier in the week and last week. For us, we launch when we’re ready we make sure that all the systems are ready to go,” Trina Patterson, a spokesperson Northrop Grumman, said.  47ABC told there will soon be another launch at the NASA site and this time it will be to the moon.

This launch is set to take place in 2021.
