A spectacular nighttime blastoff blazing a historic trail to the Moon is set to soar in two weeks time when NASAs LADEE spacecraft lifts off from the Eastern Shore of Virginia at NASAs Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island from Americas newest spaceport.
NASAs Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) Observatory will thunder to space at 11:27 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, from the commercial Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS) launch complex 0B at NASAs Wallops Island facility atop the maiden flight of the new, solid fueled Minotaur V rocket developed by Orbital Sciences Corp.
