Image result for NASA balloon launchNASA's super pressure balloon launch in Wanaka has been postponed again. The launch was due to happen at 4:30am on Monday, but conditions in the air and the ground were considered too poor. The wind speeds were above the levels required for launch and weather forecasts showed some chance for rain. The report will be made at 2pm this afternoon as to when the next launch attempt will take place. This is the third time NASA has attempted to launch the balloon from Wanaka.
