But at the last minute, a plane flew into the restricted airspace at Wallops Island. That prompted NASA’s commercial shipper, Orbital ATK, to scrub the liftoff. The company will try again Sunday morning to launch its unmanned Antares rocket with 7,400 pounds of cargo, including fresh fruit, vegetables, and ice cream bars.
