PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – History has been delayed after a last minute technical glitch forced NASA to scrap Saturday morning’s launch of the “Parker Solar Probe.”
Officials decided to abandon the launch after a problem with a helium pressurization system could not be fixed within the launch window.
The $1.5 billion mission will send a specially built probe through the sun’s outer atmosphere.
Officials plan to try again Sunday at 3:31 a.m.
