Update on @DARPA #LaunchChallenge countdown: Rehearsal now scheduled for Thursday 2/27; first launch opportunity on Friday, 2/28. Stay tuned to all updates on #LaunchChallenge. Watch at: darpalaunchchallenge.org
@Astra's rocket "1 of 3" is moved into vertical position at the Pacific Spaceport Complex - Alaska. Today the team is going through "wet dress rehearsal" in which the liquid propellant will be added to the rocket, but not fired. See updates at http://darpalaunchchallenge.org
[email protected] is doing a prelaunch livestream for @Astra's first launch of the DARPA launch challenge, currently scheduled for no earlier than Feb. 29.
Mike Curie says that today's planned wet dress rehearsal was postponed due to a technical issue. Teams are now hoping to conduct the wet dress tomorrow after new hardware arrives.

Today is wet dress for Team @ASTRA at the DARPA #LaunchChallenge. An update on how things are progressing will take place on our daily webcast at 2:00pm Alaska/3:00pm PT on http://darpalaunchallenge.org
An interesting point is the Text overlay in the lower left corner: Apparently it is Launch Pad D, not Launch Pad B
Due to high winds and triggered lightening, today's launch was scrubbed. The next launch opportunity will be tomorrow at 11:00am AKT/Noon PST. (The weather gods, however, may have other ideas.) Tune into darpalaunchchallenge.org for the latest information.
