The launch, originally slated for 3:01 to 9:01 a.m. Tuesday, was rescheduled due to a range safety instrumentation issue. “I am proud of our team,” said Col. Brent McArthur, 30th Space Wing vice commander and the launch decision authority.

“Because of their professionalism, discipline and intense focus on mission assurance, we saw a safe and successful launch this morning.”
