Another Black Brant IX, this time carrying the EUNIS mission, is scheduled for launch today from White Sands according to NASA's schedule.

We have launch!

The Extreme Ultraviolet Normal Incidence Spectrograph (EUNIS) mission was successfully launched at 11:30 a.m. MDT on May 18 from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.  The NASA black Brant IX sounding rocket carried the payload to an apogee of 208.4 miles (335.4 kilometers) before descending by parachute. The payload has been located and will be retrieved. Preliminary indications show that vehicle systems performed as planned and data was received.
AE/ME

Mapheus 11 mission scheduled for launch tomorrow from Esrange:

https://sscspace.com/blog/2021/05/04/mapheus-11/

Quote
The name of the MAPHEUS research rocket stands for “Materialphysikalische Experimente unter Schwerelosigkeit” (material physics experiments at zero gravity).

Every year the German Aerospace Center (DLR) launches a MAPHEUS research rocket with a payload developed and supervised by the Institute of Materials Physics in Space (MP).

The Mobile Rocket Base (MORABA) of Space Operations and Astronaut Training (RB) provides the payload support systems and launch service of the sounding rocket which reaches an altitude of up to 268 km and thus facilitates more than 6.5 minutes of microgravity, before it re-enters the Earth’s atmosphere.

The MAPHEUS 11 rocket in May 2021 consists of a two stage vehicle configuration that carries the nearly 250 kg scientific payload to an altitude of 216 km, providing more than 5 minutes of microgravity for the three experiments onboard.

There's a live feed hat has been running for 7 hours but the launch seems scrubbed. No live commentary as much as no news on Swedish Space Corporation or DLR Twitter profiles.

Stream still ongoing, now the graphics says "No launch attempt Saturday" so I guess it's a NET Sunday

According to the webcast the new launch time is today's 00:00 UTC (or tomorrow's? Anyway, more or less 6 and a half hours from now).

I'm not sure about the rocket they used, on Wikipedia it says Terrier-Improved Malemute but I couldn't find any other reference about that

EDIT: Someone has updated the Wikipedia page and now it says that it was an Improved Malemute-Improved Malemute configuration, but still no reference about that.

The IM-IM configuration is confirmed on SSC's MAPHEUS-11 page:

Let's move to the next one: a Terrier-Improved Malemute carrying the VIPER mission is scheduled for launch tonight from Wallops Island, with the launch window opening at 9:15 pm UTC.

More info: https://www.nasa.gov/wallops/2021/feature/nasa-rocket-mission-studying-escaping-radio-waves
Live stream: https://video.ibm.com/channel/nasa-tv-wallops (Starting at 8:55 pm UTC)

PS: would it be a good idea to have a dedicated thread for each one of the main suborbital ranges (Wallops/White Sands/Esrange)?
