A rocket was successfully launched this morning from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility. The launch had been rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday to allow for additional testing of launch vehicle systems. The launch was postponed again Sunday because of rough seas and bad weather.
The experiment, known as IRVE-3, is part of the Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator Project within the Game Changing Development Program and part of NASA's Space Technology Program, according to the space agency.
The experiment was launched on a Black Brant XI sounding rocket.
