The thick cloud rule during the instantaneous launch window of today’s 2nd attempt for Italy’s Cosmo-SkyMed 2 caused a launch scrub during final fueling of SpaceX Falcon 9 B-1052-3.

Third attempt in clear but cold skies will be Saturday January 29th 2022 at 6:11 PM EST or 23:11 UTC. Locally at Cape Canaveral everyone is hoping that “third time is the charm” will come true.
