A small change of pace from all the Kennedy/Canaveral launches...

Orbital ATK's Antares rocket is employed to launch resupply missions to the ISS, much like SpaceX's Falcon 9. It flies from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island, along the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

The launch was originally scheduled for Saturday morning, but a wayward plane (external link) in the launch hazard area forced an abort about 90 seconds before liftoff. Then the follow-up attempt on Sunday was nearly thwarted by wayward boat (external link), but the Coast Guard was able to step in and the launch proceeded successfully at 7:19am.

Excellent series. Liking the "ISS ON-RAMP" direction sign in the last one.:-)
