Scrub! Rocket Lab's first-ever launch from U.S. soil delayed by upper level winds

UPDATE: Rocket Lab, which has been launching small satellites on its Electron rockets from New Zealand since 2017, is no longer targeting Monday (Dec. 19) for the first flight from its new U.S. launch pad on Wallops Island, Virginia. The private spaceflight company is "assessing remaining opportunities for launch this month," according to a Tweet by the company.

The launch attempt on Dec. 18 was scrubbed due to upper level winds.

The rocket will deliver six HawkEye 360 satellites to monitor global radio frequencies.
