The idea is of use a 747 Cosmic Girl as a mother medium (after appropriate modifications made in these years) for the launch of satellites to be sent in low orbit, thanks to the use of the space launcher system known as the Launcher One.
The test mission will take place tonight, within a launch window between 19 and 21 according to our time zone. No media coverage with direct streaming, but the company will update its Twitter profile in real time, covering every single information and reporting all the current news. The launch was originally scheduled for Sunday, but a sensor problem forced the company to postpone earlier this week.
Our team has worked diligently to resolve the sensor issue and recycle the system. We are now back in the countdown, and are currently targeting another launch attempt tomorrow, with our window again open from 10 AM to 2 PM Pacific (17:00 – 21:00 UTC). pic.twitter.com/2cifLLKgfK
