April 10 NASA Balloon Launch Attempt Postponed Due to Weather
NASA postponed the third launch attempt of its super pressure balloon (SPB) from Wanaka, New Zealand, at 4:30 a.m. Monday, April 10 (New Zealand time) due to poor weather at ground and surface levels.
Wind speeds were just slightly above those required for launch, and with the uncertainty for precipitation in the area, the team made the decision to postpone for the day.
NASA will announce by 2 p.m. Monday, April 10, whether or not Tuesday's weather will support a launch attempt.
