alert NASA's newest mission, ICON, expected to launch tonight
NASA's ICON mission to explore where Earth's weather meets space weather is expected to launch Thursday evening at 9:30 p.m. ET from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

ICON will be air-launched on Northrop Grumman's L-1011 Stargrazer aircraft on the Pegasus XL rocket, which takes off at 8:33 p.m.
The mission was initially expected to launch last November. It was rescheduled "following the completion of a joint NASA/Northrop Grumman investigation into a Pegasus sensor reading that was not within normal limits during previous ferry and launch attempt flights. The cause of the issue is understood, and the flight hardware has been modified to address the issue," according to NASA.
