WALLOPS ISLAND, Va.- NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Accomack County is getting ready for another Antares rocket launch.

It will mark Northrop Grumman's twelfth commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station.

The rocket, carrying the Cygnus cargo spacecraft, was expected to launch in October. Now, NASA says it will launch no earlier than Nov. 2.

The date is reflective of the expected departure of the Japan Aersospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) HTV-8 cargo vehicle in October, as well as other station activities.
