SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch of NASA’s Psyche mission delayed to Oct. 13

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — The launch of NASA’s Psyche asteroid mission has been delayed until 10:19 a.m. EDT (1419 GMT) on Friday (Oct. 13), to account for inclement weather that’s barreling in from the Gulf of Mexico. 

Psyche, NASA’s probe to explore a metal asteroid of the same name, was scheduled to launch on Thursday morning (Oct. 12) on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket from Pad 39A here at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. However, during a prelaunch press briefing on Wednesday (Oct. 11) , bleak predictions for the next morning’s forecast left only a 20% chance of favorable weather conditions.
