THE HAPPENING WORLD: Astra LV0006 Orbital Test Flight

Here is more about Astra, the rocket, and the flight. The launch window opens at 21:00 UTC on 2021-08-27, but extends through September 11th, with multiple opportunities in case of delays. The video coverage will begin one hour before the launch time, whenever that may be.

Update: Launch aborted at T0, after first stage engine start. The launch attempt has been scrubbed for the day, with a new launch time not yet announced. If the problem is resolved in time, another launch opportunity is available tomorrow. (2021-08-27 21:56 UTC)
