  • Weather watch for OTV-2

    Weather is threatening to prevent an on-time launch of the X-37B/OTV-2 from Space Launch Complex 41. The first 10-minute launch window opens at 3.50 pm EST, but cumulus clouds are marching towards the launch area and range officials say there is currently a 90% chance that these will violate launch conditions. A second 10-min launch window occurs at 5.27 pm EST today if the first window is closed by weather. However the range remains “green” at this time.
