WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. (AP) – NASA has postponed the launch of a suborbital rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
    
NASA had planned to the SubTech-6 on Sunday morning to test new suborbital rocket technologies. The space agency says the launch was scrubbed because boats were in the hazard area.
    
The launch has been rescheduled for Monday between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m.
    
The technologies to be tested during the launch include improvements in telemetry and a deployment system for forming vapor clouds. The launch also will test flight recorders to increase the rates for data collected and transferred during flight.
