Being KING FM's Special Space Correspondant, I was watching NASA TV early Saturday morning, May 19, when the launch was aborted due to a faulty check valve.
Liftoff for the second launch attempt is set for 1:44 MDT on Tuesday morning, May 22. If successful, this would be the first time a private company has been used to deliver supplies to the space station.
