Launch Update 🚀 We’re still scheduled for a launch attempt tonight for the RockSatX student sounding rocket launch. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the weather and will have more updates later this afternoon. The window opens at 5:30 p.m. Stay tuned!

Our NASA Wallops Flight Facility Visitor Center viewing area will be open again for this launch. Our visitor center staff recommend arriving at least one hour before launch, and to bring bug spray, umbrellas, and chairs in case the bleachers are full.

With heat indexes over 100°F, we highly recommend bringing supplies to stay cool and hydrated. We won’t have a food truck today, so BYO snacks.
