Two launches rescheduled for Saturday and Sunday could now happen on Sunday and Monday.

Due to weather, the commercial space company said it is now targeting Sunday for the launch of Italy’s COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG-2) satellite into orbit. 

CSG-2 is designed to provide critical data and emergency risk prevention. 

The instantaneous launch window opens at 6:11 p.m.
