Small artificial satellites were not sent to the sky, as planned by the Rocket Lab. To such a step astronomical company summed up the inclement weather. As is known, the launch of the Kubsat was scheduled for December 12.
The plans were also to send into space as part of the educational program of the National Space Agency (NASA) and ten satellites. The rocket was supposed to be activated on the Mahiya Peninsula, which is part of New Zealand.
Deterioration of the weather conditions, according to the company's employees, was not expected by anyone, and it was simply unwise to launch in this situation. New date of sending a rocket into the sky is not yet called.
"The weather is disgusting, so we just need to delay the mission # ELaNa19," wrote the representatives of Rocket Lab on Twitter. “Tomorrow it will be the same weather, according to meteorologists, but we are going to continue to evaluate the conditions in order to name the latest launch date soon.”
