BREAKING: Bad weather has canceled Launch America

Launch America has been canceled due to on-and-off rain and a tornado warning hanging over Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

‘Launched scrubbed’ was what officials said during the live stream (streaming on social media) with just 16 minutes left before Falcon 9 was set to launch towards the International Space Station.

NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley were strapped in the cabin of Crew Dragon Capsule ready for take off or ’blast off’ as some may say with the crew access arm retracted, fuel being loaded and the launch escape system armed in case of a disaster - when the team pulled the plug on the mission.


All attractions are now closed due to the Covid - 19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. The majority of town centre stores have now reopened with social distancing in place
